I want to access contacts from outlook 2007 by using VB.NET.
How can I do it ?
Tell me some basic step and procedure...

Use MAPI (Messaging Application Programming Interface) - a API provided by Microsoft. Simple MAPI is a subset of 12 functions which enable programmers to add basic messaging functionality to programs.

Extended MAPI allows complete control over the messaging system on the client computer by connecting to messaging applications like Office Outlook, or mail servers like Exchange and allowing access to address books and folders etc....

Simple MAPI ships with Microsoft Windows as part of Outlook Express/Windows Mail while the full Extended MAPI ships with Office Outlook and Exchange.
