You can create an ODBC DSN to MSExchange. Just set up in the normal way from Control Panel, 32bit ODBC (you may see the exchange driver there, if not, use SQL 6.5 and point the the exchange server). When installing though you may need to create the registry key for the DSN. Either do this in Setup1.exe or when the users logs on, check the registry for its existence (regqueryvalueex api call).

But what will I be able to do? Can I control the Tasks and Calander of the Exchange Server?
Can I use ADO or must I use DAO?
