YOu fill probably find that Microsoft does not want you to have access to that information, so will not make it easy to get. This is a privacy issue and Microsoft does not want to be liable. My guess is that the only way to get that information is directly from the web page, and you have to hope that Microsoft does not change the format too oftn.

Solution 1

Hotmail does not suppor Open Authorization. Instead they use their own live API.

Refer to the link below,[^]

Also check the sample code[^]

This will give you enough idea to start.

Solution 2

Live Connect API gives hashes of email IDs in hotmail user's contact list and not the actual email ids.
Any method that can be used to fetch email IDs of a hotmail user.
Suggestions please...
