HRESULT SaveContentsSort( LPSSortOrderSet lpSortCriteria, ULONG ulFlags );
[in] A pointer to an SSortOrderSet structure that contains the default sort order.
[in] A bitmask of flags that controls how the default sort order is set. The following flag can be set:
The default sort order set applies to the indicated folder and to all its subfolders.
The sort order was successfully saved.
The message store provider does not support saving a sort order for its folder contents tables.
The IMAPIFolder::SaveContentsSort method establishes a default sort order for a folder's contents table. That is, when a client calls the folder's IMAPIContainer::GetContentsTable method after the code calls SaveContentsSort, the rows in the returned contents table will appear in the order established by SaveContentsSort.
Not all message store providers support SaveContentsSort; it is acceptable for message store providers to return MAPI_E_NO_SUPPORT from the SaveContentsSort method.
