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!
