  • This means that the email address being stored in that property is the EX type if the contact has been added from the GAL (or migrated from somewhere) if you use a Mapi editor you will probably find the SMTP address is in another property but the way i would tackle this is you can use the EX address and the EWS resolvename operation to get the SMTP Address eg

            NameResolutionCollection nd = service.ResolveName(contact.EmailAddresses[EmailAddressKey.EmailAddress1].Address);
            foreach (NameResolution nm in nd) {
              if (nm.Mailbox.RoutingType == "SMTP")
