This ResolveName(String, ResolveNameSearchLocation, Boolean, PropertySet) overload and the ResolveName(String, IEnumerable<FolderId>, ResolveNameSearchLocation, Boolean, PropertySet) overload methods were introduced in the Exchange Web Services (EWS) Managed API 1.2.

Email addresses with prefixed routing types, such as smtp or sip, are saved in a multivalue array. The ResolveNames method performs a partial match against each value of that array when you add the routing type at the beginning of the unresolved name, such as “sip:User1@Contoso.com”. If you don’t specify a routing type, the ResolveNames method will default to the routing type of smtp, match it to a primary SMTP address property, and not search the multivalue array.

Calling this method results in a call to Exchange Web Service (EWS).
