I need to know how to check, when the OL Object is instantiated, the default profile's email address.
We want to check to see if the email of the user logged into our application is the same as the one in
the default profile in OL.

OK found the answer based on a 7ry old post of mine on DelphiPages:


uses ..., Outlook2000, MAPIDefs, MAPIUtil;
 
var
  pmOutlook:     _Application;
  NameSpace:     _NameSpace;
  DefaultUser:   Recipient;
  _AddressEntry: AddressEntry;
  pProp:         PSPropValue;
  MP:            IMAPIProp;
  strAddress:    String;
begin
  try
    pmOutlook    := GetActiveOleObject('outlook.application') as _Application;
  except
    try
      pmOutlook  := CreateOleObject('outlook.application') as _Application;
    except
      on e:EOleSysError do
        ShowMessage('Cannot Load Outlook:' + E.Message);
    end;
  end;
  try
    Namespace   := pmOutlook.GetNamespace('MAPI');
    MAPIInitialize(nil);
    try
      DefaultUser := NameSpace.CurrentUser;
      if DefaultUser.Address <> '' then
      begin
        _AddressEntry := DefaultUser.AddressEntry;
        MP:= IUnknown(_AddressEntry.MAPIOBJECT) as IMailUser;
        if S_OK = HrGetOneProp(MP, $39FE001E, pProp) then
        begin
          strAddress:=pProp.Value.lpszA;
          MAPIFreeBuffer(pProp);
        end;
        ListBox1.Items.Add(_AddressEntry.Name + ' : ' +  strAddress);
        Application.ProcessMessages;
      end; {if}
    finally
      MAPIUninitialize;
    end;
  finally
    pmOutlook.Application.Quit;
    pmOutlook     := Unassigned;
    Namespace     := Unassigned;
    DefaultUser   := Unassigned;
    _AddressEntry := Unassigned;
  end;
end;
