  • Hi,

    Theoretically, EmailAddresses parameter specifies all the email addresses (proxy addresses) for the recipient, including the primary SMTP address.

    For WindowsEmailAddress parameter, it's a common Active Directory attribute that's present in all environments, including environments without Exchange. If you modify this attribute in Active Directory, the recipient's primary email address is not updated to the same value.

    In on-premises environments, if the EmailAddressPolicyEnabled property is set to the value True for the recipient, the WindowsEmailAddress parameter has no effect on the WindowsEmailAddress property or the primary email address value.

    In cloud environments or in on-premises environments, if the EmailAddressPolicyEnabled property is set to the value False for the recipient, the WindowsEmailAddress parameter updates the WindowsEmailAddress property and the primary email address to the same value.

    Best Regards.
