Hello Sir,
Recently I am working on a project where I need to fetch all contacts of different email providers like Yahoo, Rediffmail, Facebook, Orkut, Twitter, Hotmail, LinkedIn, any Exchange Server etc. I have read this topic on all different forums. I did not found any relevent solution. Importing Gmail contacts I already know.
I feel I can get solution here on this forum. If you can not provide solution then what can be good approach of doing this. I think screen scraping in banned on lot of social networking websites.
I have read a lot about it. I have seen some forums provide solution in php and call it from But isn't is possible by .NET alone. I need solution in C# classes or

Any help would be appreciated.
With Regards,
Shyam Sunder Tinwar

Did you try to look at the exposed API's of them?

Yes I do, Yahoo has a API and I am working on It. It seems rediff and hotmail dont have API. Facebook has API. I started working on it. But I haven't find a working example of it.

I have already checked this post. And I think screen scraping is prohibited. May be I got a solution for yahoo but not for other, so waiting for any relevant answer.

If you get any other feasible solution please let me know.
