If you look around the net, you can find articles that say you can use the MAPI Session object's OpenAddressBook method but in my (fairly old) version that method isn't there. I'm pretty sure you can do this with CDO if you have that installed. Most of this is designed to work with Outlook rather than Outlook Express, however.

But I would say that CDO will probably do what you need. Sorry I don't have an example handy.
