I am developing an application for my own use. I would like to access my outlook PST files from within this application for viewing and searching purposes. (i.e.) Read only.

How can do so?

Hello monzer_yazigi,

Outlook PST file is in proprietary format.  Only Outlook can view the file.  Your application will have to call Outlook to open and read the file.

Hope this helps!

Outlook automation can be accomplished by using TurboPower OfficePartner components, they are freeware now.
