Auto-resolved "winner"PR_CONFLICT_ITEMS contains a list of entry IDs of the auto-resolved "losers."
Auto-resolved "loser"PR_CONFLICT_ITEMS contains the entry ID of the auto-resolved "winner."

You can determine if an item is the "winner" or the "loser" by noticing where the item is located. If the item is in the Conflicts folder in the mailbox of the user, the item is the "loser." If the item is anywhere else, the item is the "winner."
