I have to develope a system that will be doing appointments. Something similar to MS Outlook. I will also want to be able to interact with the system, i.e. to send a list of appointments and incorporate it.
Does MS Outlook allow customizing or programming so I could addapt it according to my needs? If not, is there any open source I could use as a basis?

In short, I want to have the functionality of MS Outlook in my program plus additional features.

Yes, you can program many aspects of Outlook.  Within Outlook you can write VBA code to do a surprising number of things.  You can also manipulate Outlook from outside Outlook using the Outlook object model or Redemption (http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/), a third-party library that avoids many of the built-in security constraints that make programming Outlook difficult.  Can you adapt it according to your needs?  That depends on the specifics of what you want to do.
