    Are you already conversant with C++? I can't help with that part. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    If you are writing a program to interact with Exchange Server, there are big, fat, heavy, expensive books giving detailed instructions on how to do it. I typically don't browse those in any level of detail. If you are writing a program to interact with Outlook on the desktop, there aren't as many focused resources in the bookstores. Start by looking up MAPI, extended MAPI, and CDO (Collaboration Data Objects) on MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/) for online documentation and tips.

    As Jefferson mentioned about the texts... C++Builder 5 Developer's Guide has a chapter devoted to it. The procedure is to drop a component on a form, and access the properties and methods exposed by the Outlook Typelib.

    I have no idea how to do it in VC.
