WCF uses soap messages to communicate. Usually we communicate in WCF using Datacontacts. However DataContract has limited control over the SOAP message.If you want to customize the soap messages we will use MessageContract.

Message contract cosists of

MessageContract : use to define a message contract for a type
MessageHeader : Use the MessageHeaderAttribute to those members of the type you want to make into SOAP headers
MessageBodyMember : Use the MessageBodyMemberAttribute to those members you want to make into parts of the SOAP body of the message.

If you dont mention MessageBody then the your wont be able to add any custom properties to the soap message
