I'm afraid I don't know anything about how Outlook Express likes to receive its data - hopefully one of our other posters can help out here.

hey
Not sure how to do this as I have no ActiveX experience. (which you most likelly need to do to be able to do this type of thing)...but IBM's alphaworks (alphaworks.ibm.com) has some sort of ActiveX bridge that lets you access windows stuff. This isn't a trivial task though...nor will it be portable to AIX/Solaris/Hp-Ux/Linux/Mac/Palm/uhmm/Minix/etc.
good luck

I think you should be able to invoke outlook express (or any other program for that matter) using the Runtime class (lang package). Try it out..
Regarding send data directly to Outlook Express, i have no idea how to do it. If you happen to find out, kindly keep us informed.

Hi,
Yes you can do it. Use jintegra tool from www.linar.com. Download the tool. It is freeware but expires after a certain time. After you have to again download it.
The documentation of this tool will give you how to use it.
