I am looking for a way using vb net 2005 to extract e-mail addresses from the local user's outlook PST file.  I need to be able to populate a dropdown box with all local e-mail addresses.

Thanks in advance.

Looks almost like overkill.....  After this is developed, I want to be able to distribute to all employees in our firm....  Looks like I would have to buy their $200 distributable version.....  Any other possible ideas.... do not need the full funtionality of the redemption library....  Just the ability to loop through all the stored e-mail addresses in a local user's account.

You've given me a solution so I will award points.... but, I would like to leave the question open just a little longer so you can reply.

Thanks,

You can also attach the pst file to Outlook and then read it using Outlook Object Model (Office Interop)
