AddressEntry.AddressEntryUserType Property

Office 2007
Returns a constant from the OlAddressEntryUserType enumeration representing the user type of the AddressEntry. Read-only.

Version Information
 Version Added:  Outlook 2007



expression   A variable that represents an AddressEntry object.


AddressEntryUserType provides a level of granularity for user types that is finer than that of AddressEntry.DisplayType. The DisplayType property does not distinguish users with different types of AddressEntry, such as an AddressEntry that has a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) e-mail address, a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) address, an Exchange user address, or an AddressEntry in the Outlook Contacts Address Book. All these entires have olUser as their AddressEntry.DisplayType.


The following code sample shows how to obtain the business phone number, office location, and job title for all Exchange user entries in the Exchange Global Address List. It first uses AddressList.AddressListType to find the Global Address List. Since the Global Address List can contain multiple types of entries such as Exchange user, Exchange distribution list, and Exchange public folder, for each AddressEntry on that AddressList, the code sample uses AddressEntryUserType to verify if the AddressEntry represents an Exchange user. After it finds an Exchange user, it obtains and prints the various pieces of data for the user.

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
