these are other interesting ways to connect to it:

connect to outlook like if it were a dataset:
http://homepages.borland.com/torry/vcl/system/appscommunications/outltb.zip
By Lothar Perr. Component to connect Delphi Applications to MS-Outlook 97 and 2000 (including the Mails,
Contact list, Notes, Apointments, Command bars Items..). Sample Included.
 
Fully functional

Exe-demo included

Here is another example of a TOutlookDataset that lets you browse the mail only...

hey why the shouting ??
your question says

getting "outlook express" e-mail messages"

well anyways for example to show the inbox :

uses comobj;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  outlook,namespace,folder : variant;
 const olFolderInbox = $00000006;
begin
 try
   Outlook := GetActiveOleObject('Outlook.Application');
  except on exception do
    Outlook := CreateOleObject('Word.Application');
  end;
  NameSpace := Outlook.GetNamespace('MAPI');
  NameSpace.Logon('', '', False, False);
  Folder := NameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox);
  Folder.Display;
end;


because of the many version of delphi and outlook differences it will be better for you to read as much here
http://www.djpate.freeserve.co.uk/AutoOutl.htm
as possible and some from the links if relevent and see the sample at bottom of page
http://www.djpate.freeserve.co.uk/D5Outlook.zip
this sample shows how to iterate through contacts so you can modify to iterate through mailitems of inbox.
