    I don't think that is possible to read mails in outlook from asp.net application. you can create windows forms application which downloads files from email and store them to file system folder.

    for this I advise you to read following article:

    Are you sure you don't want to read them from the mail server, not the mail client?

    If this is a one time thing, and you need to read them from a mail client, then I would suggest connecting the client to an IMAP server (like gmail), moving all of the mail to gmail, and then reading it with an IMAP component. It's a little work, but the solution will be much cleaner.
