    Did you try this

    Get-Contact | sort-object LastName | %{ Get-MailContact $_.DistinguishedName | select Name,PrimarySMTPAddress }

  • Hi Naresh,

    I'll be making the assumption, that you are using the EWS Managed Api.

    When loading items in EWS, you only get a few default properties unless you define property sets for your query. This means, that you need to tell Exchange just what properties you want, otherwise it won't tell you.

    However, it is possible to load the properties afterwards, either by individually using the "load" method on the item (scales horribly if you are loading many items) or the corresponding bulk operation on the exchange service object (scales very well, but requires a bit more effort to implement).


    There's no place like
