I am working on an application that needs to pull contact data from a public folder.
I am able to pull contact data from a user's mailbox with the following code:
            ContactsFolder contactsfolder = ContactsFolder.Bind(service,
                                                                WellKnownFolderName.Contacts,
                                                                new PropertySet(BasePropertySet.IdOnly, FolderSchema.TotalCount));
            int numItems = contactsfolder.TotalCount < 1000 ? contactsfolder.TotalCount : 1000;
            ItemView view = new ItemView(numItems);
            view.PropertySet = new PropertySet(BasePropertySet.IdOnly, ContactSchema.DisplayName);
            FindItemsResults<Item> contactItems = service.FindItems(WellKnownFolderName.Contacts, view);

Open in new window

If I replace WellKnownFolderName.Contacts with the Folder ID of the public folder I still get the results from WellKnownFolderName.Contacts.  How can I get contacts from a public folder?

WellKnownFolderName.Contacts appears twice in the code. Are you sure you are replacing
both instances?

I know that is a bit of an obvious answer, but using the public folder id should have worked,
and I can't think of anything else that would explain it.

I all else fails, turn on request tracing.
