  • I don’t think it is a good idea to do it in VC++. You have to use COM for that.
    But if you use some VB instead, you'll be able to accomplish quite a lot.

    You'll find a lot of help here http://www.outlookcode.com/

    You'll find how to send e-mails to a particular address here: http://www.outlookcode.com/d/code/sendreminder.htm

    But you'll have to be a bit more specific about how you store the list of people, their e-mail adress and how do you know who has an appointment when.

  • Thanks for the information.

    Are there any ActiveX controls that can help a win32 app to access the Outlook mail contacts?

    Thanks,
