how can I create/manage Outlook Tasks using ASP.NET Web Forms on an XP Pro
machine setup with IIS 5.1 and with Outlook 2007 installed on the same 'server'
machine?

Are there some code samples available illustrating the coding techniques?

We are developing an ASP.NET web app on a LAN using an XP Pro machine as a server with IIS 5.1 installed. The requirements are to provide a SCHEDULER for digital lighting tasks (turn lights off/on/ to scenes, etc.) So, naturally, I am looking at using Outlook 2007 on the same machine, and integrating it with ASP.NET.

VB.NET is preferred, but C# will suffice too.

Wasn't sure of the development (IDE) context used (Outlook, ASP.NET?)
