ExchangeUser Object

Outlook Developer Reference

Provides detailed information about an AddressEntry that represents a Microsoft Exchange mailbox user.

Version Information
 Version Added:  Outlook 2007


ExchangeUser is derived from the AddressEntry object, and is returned instead of an AddressEntry when the caller performs a query interface on the AddressEntry object.

This object provides first-class access to properties applicable to Exchange users such as FirstName, JobTitle, LastName, and OfficeLocation. You can also access other properties specific to the Exchange user that are not exposed in the object model through the PropertyAccessor object. Note that some of the explicit built-in properties are read-write properties. Setting these properties requires the code to be running under an appropriate Exchange administrator account; without sufficient permissions, calling the ExchangeUser.Update method will result in a "permission denied" error.


The following code sample shows how to obtain the business phone number, office location, and job title for all entries in the Exchange Global Address List.

Visual Basic for Applications
  Sub DemoAE()
    Dim colAL As Outlook.AddressLists
    Dim oAL As Outlook.AddressList
    Dim colAE As Outlook.AddressEntries
    Dim oAE As Outlook.AddressEntry
    Dim oExUser As Outlook.ExchangeUser
    Set colAL = Application.Session.AddressLists
    For Each oAL In colAL
        'Address list is an Exchange Global Address List
        If oAL.AddressListType = olExchangeGlobalAddressList Then
            Set colAE = oAL.AddressEntries
            For Each oAE In colAE
                If oAE.AddressEntryUserType = _
                    olExchangeUserAddressEntry Then
                    Set oExUser = oAE.GetExchangeUser
                End If
        End If
End Sub
