Why can't I read an Outlook Contacts folder with the "mapi" format?

Symptom: You are trying to convert to an Outlook folder on an Exchange Server, but the "MAPI" ID isn't working.  For example, this doesn't work:
 
addrload nsf mapi:Contacts
 
Cause: The "MAPI" ID is only used to read the Exchange address book, not to read or write an Outlook folder.
 
Solution: Use the PST (Outlook) ID if you want to read or write an Outlook folder, even if that folder is on an Exchange Server.
