[O365] [EWSMA 2.0] [C#] [Windows] How do you create a contact folder that resides under the "My Contacts" node in OWA for O365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In OWA for Office 365 you can create a contact folder that resides under the "My Contacts" node on "Peoples" tab. This folder ends up appearing under the "Contacts" folder in the exchange store. However, if you attempt to create a contact folder under "My Contacts" using Outlook it ends up under "Other Contacts" node in OWA for O365. Even if you attempt to position folder at the root of exchange store it still places it under the "Other Contacts" folder. The same is also true if you attempt to create a folder using EWS. Is there a way to create a folder using EWS that will appear under the "My Contacts" node in OWA for O365? I've tried the following with no luck:

      
                ContactsFolder myContactsFolder = new ContactsFolder(EwsService);
                myContactsFolder.DisplayName = "My contacts folder";
                // Set other properties
                myContactsFolder.Save(WellKnownFolderName.Contacts);
    
                

    and

    ContactsFolder myContactsFolder = newContactsFolder(EwsService);
                myContactsFolder.DisplayName = "My contacts folder";
                // Set other properties
                myContactsFolder.Save(WellKnownFolderName.MsgFolderRoot);
