You can use an MS-Access MDB file in the middle between your Delphi application and MS-Exchange.

Basically, you first create a blank Access MDB database (say AddressBook.MDB). Then using MS-Access, open the AddressBook.MDB and using the Link-tables feature of MS-Access, create an exchange-linked table (say TblABook).

Note: To link a table in Access, right-click on the Tables tab and chose link-table from the menu. You will get a dialog box, in the file type, chose Exchange().

Once the access database is created, you can access the exchange information from Delphi by connecting to the AddressBook.MDB as:

Select * from TblABook

Generally you must use Microsoft CDO (Collaboration Data Objects). If you have Outlook 2000 installed
simple import Microsoft CDO library
in Delphi IDE, and see MSDN.
