Solution 2

For accessing "Notes" from Outlook's particular contact property,used "Body" property and for priority -Importance property used,

<Private> is actually a subset of the <Sensitity> field - a numeric field with the values of

0 - Normal
1 - Personal
2 - Private
3 - Conifidential

"business street 2" and "business street 3" values are defined based on "\r\n" in "businessaddressstreet" property.

but could not figure out for Directory server property
