Difference between EWS and Microsoft Graph RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Our company recently migrated all users to Outlook 365.  Our in-house applications that used a specific user account to monitor a mailbox and send email to external clients has stopped working since.  Our vb script that creates contacts in public folders has also stopped working.

    I am so confused as to what should be used for automating these processes with Outlook365.  Some articles refer to EWS for Outlook and then there is Microsoft Graph.  Is Microsoft Graph the newer version of EWS?

    Can someone provide guidance as to what to use?


    1. Programmatically monitor mailbox, process emails that come into the mailbox and update in house SQL database.
    2. Create business contacts setup in Public Folder.

    We have been struggling with this for a few days now.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much.
