  • I would probably suggest you get the SMTPAddress of the Attendee and then use the Get User Photo operation https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj190905(v=exchg.150).aspx

  • Hey Glen,

    I tried the fallowing code to get ItemID but nothing is returns, I think its beacuse i haven't created any contacts in exchange. anyway thats not what i am tring to achieve. i want itemsID's of existing email user. How can get that ?

      private static void FindEmail(string name)
                NameResolutionCollection resolvedNames = service.ResolveName(name);
                // Outputs the list of candidates.
                foreach (NameResolution nameRes in resolvedNames)
                    Console.WriteLine("e-mail address: " + nameRes.Mailbox.Address);
                    string Fullname = nameRes.Mailbox.Name;
                    string email = nameRes.Mailbox.Address;
            private static void Imper(ExchangeService service,string email, string fullname)
                ImpersonatedUserId impersonatedUserId = new ImpersonatedUserId(ConnectingIdType.SmtpAddress, email);
                service.ImpersonatedUserId = impersonatedUserId;
                ItemView view1 = new ItemView(10);
                SearchFilter sf = new SearchFilter.IsEqualTo(ContactSchema.DisplayName, fullname);
                FindItemsResults<Item> findResults = service.FindItems(WellKnownFolderName.Contacts, view1);
                foreach (Item itemids in findResults)
                    string id = itemids.Id.UniqueId;
                    Console.WriteLine("UniqueID of the contact: "+ id);
                    //GetContactPhoto(service, id);

    Please check the code and give some suggestions on it.

    Thanking You.

  • If you use the latest EWS Managed API from git hub https://github.com/OfficeDev/ews-managed-api you just need a couple of lines to use it

                GetUserPhotoResults GetUserPhoto = service.GetUserPhoto("user@doman.com", "HR240x240", "Blah");
                if (GetUserPhoto.Status == GetUserPhotoStatus.PhotoReturned) 

    GetUserPhoto take the SMTP Address of the user you want the GAL photo from.
