I need to extract data from an outlook .pst file. I found a company that has written a library that will do this, so I know it is possible. (Unfortunately, the company - Aspose, wants an exorbitant amount of money to use their tools.) Has anyone seen some free code out there that will point me in the right direction?

    This looks like commercial, but maybe cheaper than Aspose:
