1. You can use outlook OLE interface. See

2. You can use Exchange Web Services. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa563060(EXCHG.80).aspx The code

The system will need to be able to update mailboxes on a server and there won't be any clients/Outlooks running so I think Exchange Web Services would be best.  

I have looked at the links.  It doesn't seem to describe how you setup an application to use EWS.  Do you know of any tutorials?  Or do you have any sample code?

Thanks so much.
EWS is really a better option. First you will have to enable EWS for your exchange server (I guess there should be some settings, I don't have the server so can't tell you what exactly needs to be done). Perhaps the following link will help you on how to setup EWS. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb204119(EXCHG.80).aspx

Once it is setup, you can consume the services using your client. See http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/Delphi-Kylix/Web-Services-Made-Easy-With-Delphi/

If required, I can provide further information on consuming web services.
