Parse / Read / Text-mining / Extract data for Microsoft Outlook pst file and save in a text file

I want to make the MS Outlook pst file searchable.

I should be able to parse it, read it, extract out data and / or mine-text from pst file, and store all the e-mail messages in a text file with complete relevant information like folder (inbox / outbox / drafts / ....), sender, cc, bcc, date, .................

Need a complete working solution (no bits or pieces), preferably in Java (VB, VC, C++, C may also do)

For example, if I use your code to parse the file outlook.pst, then I should get an output text file (say output.txt) containing sample data like:


     FolderName     AttachmentName     Flagged     From     Subject     Received     Body ..

e.g.Inbox              resume.doc             0              a@b.c    res           april 24,04.. ........
     Inbox ............................................................................
     Outbox .............................................................
     Drafts .....................................................

Have a look to this sourceforge project:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ol2mbox/

It will convert all mails in a PST file to Unix/Linux mbox format, but you can modify it for your own purposes. LIBPST will do the job.

To acomplish what you want you will need lots of source code, that can't be sent here.
