Accessing Address book from C#

P: n/a
Hi,

I will like to access the Address book in windows via C# (.net 2.0), is this
possible and can it be done independent of the mail program that the end
users are using??

Where are the Address Books stored? Exchange server?

If it is an exchange server, look into WebDAV, it allows you to
send/receive xml web service queries and it returns the appropraite
data, you can retrieve public folders, or a specific users information.
I used it to allow people to add calendar items to an exchange public
calendar, and then display it over a website using c# and asp.net

If the address books are stored in some other medium, it depends on the
vendor and if they have a way to programmatically retrieve the
information.
