Email Address Lookup

Does anyone know a way to provide a contact lookup tool so a user can select email addresses in a VB application similar to clicking on the "To" button in Outlook?

What I am really looking for is a way to gather this from the SMTP mail server without using a mail reader client app like Outlook. Some of our users have different mail readers, so hitting the SMTP mail server is preferred.

well, you'll need to create another form with a listbox and capture the event for someone clicking a name to send it back to the previous form. but as far as enumerating from the SMTP server, that's going to be highly dependent on the type of SMTP server you're using and whether you're in a domain or a workgroup etc.
