In Outlook, I want a button on the toolbar that will execute a script.  The script is to print the email using the Adobe Acrobat print driver.  Can Outlook execute such a script?  If so, what scripting language(s) would work?

Yes, you can certainly add a button to a toolbar and execute a script when it's clicked.  I expect that printing using the Acrobat print driver is possible, but I've never actually tried.  Scripting inside Outlook is usually done using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications).
