MFCMAPI Does Contacts

Randy Byrne and I just published an article in the MSDN showing how to use the Exchange Server Protocols documentation to create a contact. This is the first opportunity I’ve had to publicly show off the add-in architecture I built in to MFCMAPI last year. Over the next few months, I hope to produce a few more add-ins as we work our way through the protocol documentation. Right now I’m writing a parser for the recurrence blob and it’s not as difficult as I thought it’d be. As Randy said in a mail announcing this article: “Long live MFCMAPI!”

    Hi, why the "Display As:" field don’t display the string that set to it when create a new contact. It still display as combine PR_SUBJECT_W and (email address) after create a new contact.

    I try to create a new contact, and set it “PidLidEmail1DisplayName” property. While when I use Outlook to open the contact I created, the content of “Display as:” is not the value I set when creating, instead, it is the combination of the “PR_SUBJECT_W” property and “PidLidEmail1EmailAddress” property.
