You have to create the session first.  

Set objCDO = Application.CreateObject("MAPI.Session")

i left that out as obvious. :)

but what i realized was that there had to be an IUSR MAPI-profile.
anyone got any ideas on how to create this?

CDO's logon method allows you to create a dymanic profile.  The call looks like:

objSession.Logon "","", False, True, 0, True, strProfile

strProfile is a string variable that is comprised of the name of the Exchange server, a LF, and the mailbox.

The big thing that makes this work however is to make sure that you force the user to authenticate because IUSR_<computername> generally doesn't have any rights to Exchange mailboxes.
