There are two interfaces you can use -
MAPI (Messaging Application Programming Interface )
CDO (Collaboration Data Objects) - which is only an additional scripting interface to the MAPI

I reccommend you to read in MSDN about CDO.

Here is an example

' get PAB AddressList from AddressLists collection of Session
Dim myList As AddressList ' used to obtain PAB
Dim newEntry As AddressEntry ' new user in PAB
Dim newField As Field ' fax number of new user
' assume objSession created and logged on to without problem
Set myList = objSession.AddressLists("Personal Address Book")
' add new AddressEntry to AddressEntries collection of AddressList
Set newEntry = myList.AddressEntries.Add("FAX", "John Doe")
' add FaxNumber field to new AddressEntry and give it a value
Set newField = newEntry.Fields.Add("FaxNumber", vbString)
newField.Value = "+1-206-555-7069" ' could have supplied this in Add
' commit new entry, field, and value to PAB AddressList
newEntry.Update
