Visual Basic & Outlook Express

Hi, I'm a VB programmer and I would like to know if someone could help me with this problem. I need to design a systema that can read Outlook Express folders and emails so I could store it in a SQL Server database.
I tried to do find some info in Internet but what I found was related to Outlook and not Outlook express.
I hope you could help me with this.
Thank you.

The reason is simple: Outlook gives you automation while OE doesn't. You won't be able to do what you want.

How are you thinking about executing your VB program?
I'm not clear about your purpose.

Outlook Express won't run Macros, while the full verion of Outlook will run VB Script Macros.

You can export any folder directly to a database.

Could you please clarify what you want your code to do, so I can better answer your quesation, rather than take shots in the dark.

Couldn't Outlook be accessed via MAPI?

Of course, Outlook can read an Outlook Express database. You could get Outlook to import the mails, and then use the VBA library to access them.

I'm guessing, but it might be worth a shot trying to open up the database files with Access (or maybe one of the more old-fashioned MS database libraries).

Hi, in fact, I'm having some problems with VB, it seems that is not well instaled in my work's PC and I have to reinstall it. But as far as I read it, it should work.
Thank you very much.
