Do you mean you want info from Outlook Express on the client's computer? 
No can do with PHP -- you'll need a client-side process (best bet: 
ActiveX) and, most likely, the user's permission as well (although 
knowing Microsoft, perhaps not...).

If you mean you want to have your server-side PHP script get info from 
your server-side Outlook Express, that's probably possible, but it would 
be much easier using MS technology instead of PHP.
