Issue with MapiContact

Hi Kashif,
I am using aspose 18.6 jar. I am setting the InstantMessagingAddress to MapiContact object in following way


That is setting properly but after export that is not showing. Is that code is proper ? Or any another property affecting it. Please help me for that.


Can you please share where we can observe this property in MS Outlook? We couldn’t find this in Default options of MS Outlook.

Can you please share how you are opening a contact in MS Outlook? When we open a saved contact by double-clicking it, it opens in Outlook for MAC as attachment to new message due to which we are not able to investigate it further at our end. Your assistance in this regard will help us investigate the issue and assist you further.

We have looked into this and the generated output VCF file contains the Instant Messaging Address when opened in MS Outlook for Mac Screenshot at Aug 28 20-46-46.png (48.6 KB)
. The only difference that we see is that the spaces are removed but it doesn’t seem to be an issue with Aspose.Email API as the same file opens with correct spaces on Windows OS.
