Check this out : (for Outlook)

For OutLook Express :
Take a look at MSDN. There is no way to manage OE programatically.
It has no API, and you cannot send any commands.

MSDN :
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q239576/
**Programmatic access to, or control of the Microsoft Outlook Express client is not supported.**

Maybe its undocumented but i don't think so.
