Resolve exchange alias to SMTP address

When working with Exchange, you’ll sometimes need the primary address and not some kind of alias. This snippet helps you with that.

var service = new ExchangeService(ExchangeVersion.Exchange2007_SP1);

service.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("001234", "PasswordForUser001234", "Domain");

foreach (var resolvedName in resolvedNames)
