Finding an email address based on a name

Hi there. I am working in Access 2003 with a reference to Outlook 2003. Is

there a way in VBA to find an email address based on a name? Maybe something

like using the Select Names dialog when you click the To... button on an

email message?

I can obviously do this manually by typing in the name and showing results

from the Global Address List, but I could have hundreds to do and I would

love to populate a table automatically behind the scenes.

Thanks in advance,

Clint

Use Namespace.CreateRecipient, followed by Recipient.Resolve

Thank you. I can get the code to work with my existing code and get the test

to pan out (that the recipient is in the address book), but how do I capture

the actual email address?

Thanks again!

After you successfully call Recipient.Resolve, Recipeint.Address will give

you what you need.

Hi there again. When I use this, I get a string like these.

> .../ou=Exchange Administrative Group

(FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=cghermaX

> .../OU=Americas01/cn=Recipients/cn=dmahesh

Although I can use the name or alias to populate an email, I really need the

actual email address. I've been looking online, but I just can't seem to

figure this out.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Clint

That *is* the actual e-mail address. It just happens to be of EX type, while

you probably need SMTP.

If you are using Outlook 2007 or higher, you can use

ExchangeUser.PrimarySmtpAddress property (ExchangeUser object is returned by

the AddressEntry.GetExchangeUser method, which can return null).

Thanks a lot for your continued help. Sorry, but as I mentioned before, I'm

using Outlook 2003.

I mentioned in a previous post that I know what is returned is an actual

email address. This will work just fine for my internal needs. However, my

users will be exporting contact lists that will go all over the place, so the

SMTP address is the only one that will do. We cannot pass something like

"Clint Herman" outside of our own Exchange environment as an email address.

Any more suggestions? I thought it would be easy to get the SMTP. Maybe it

is and I just can't seem to hit the target. Is there somewhere online that

has a complete example of this?

Thanks again!

If you cannot use Outlook 2007, your only options are either Extended MAPI

(C++/Delphi) or <plug> Redemption: it exposes SmtpAddress propertty in all

versions of Outlook - you can use somethng like the following:

set Session = CreateObject("Redemption.RDOSession")

Session.MAPIOBJECT = Application.Session.MAPIOBJECT

set AddrEntry = Session.AddressBook.ResolveName("dmitry streblechenko")

strSmtpAddress = AddrEntry.SmtpAddress

MsgBox strSmtpAddress

</plug
