  • EWS wont give you details about group membership of a users (it also wont return extra properties from Active Directory like you could in Mapi). A few things that you can do in EWS is expand a group using the expandGroup operation http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/exchange/microsoft.exchange.webservices.data.exchangeservice.expandgroup%28v=exchg.80%29.aspx.

    The other thing you can do with Groups if you have Exchange 2010 is take advantage of any of the MailTip operations.

    For what you want to do you would be better to use LDAP directory to lookup Active directory and get the group membership or if you really wanted to use an Exchange API look at using the Exchange Management Shell cmdlets
