Experts,

I don't think I'll have to work hard to convince anyone that Microsoft Outlook has some serious shortcomings.  I'm looking for recommendations of 3rd-party software that can access the Outlook database and manage the data more efficiently.

Specifically, I'd like to be able to back up the email messages in my inbox folder structure to actual Windows folders so I can back them up reliably.  I know that these messages are saved in the .pst file, but I've never had any luck restoring them.

Thanks for your help!

For the speified task at hand, absolutely.

I'm also still interested in any apps that do all kinds of cool stuff if anyone knows anything.

There are a couple of things I don't understand about this script:

>>>>>If not already expanded, expand Modules and click on Module1.
I'm not seeing anywhere to expand modules.  Is it OK if I just add one?



Also, I'm not able to create the MAPI.Session object.  I already have a reference for  the "Microsoft Office 11.0 Object Library", but that doesn't seem to help.  I tried to add a reference to "MAPI32.dll", but I got the error message, "Can't add a reference to the specified file."

What am I missing?

PS:  If I were to run this from an .exe file, what method would I call first, etc.?
