Yes. E.g.



        ( [Blob]
        SELECT  *
        FROM    OPENROWSET(BULK N'<HardCodedPathToYourFile>', SINGLE_BLOB) O;

Open in new window

But why would you do this?

This requires some .NET programming, thus it has nothing to do with SQL Server..

You can automate Outlook, attach the .pst and browse it. And push the content to SQL Server.
You can use third-party library like PST.NET. Then you don't need an installed version of Outlook.
