Well Outlook is a clientside technology, so you would first have to export them to the local file systems, then upload this export and handle it appropriately. You can ask the user to explicitly do the export (there's an export to CSV file option somewhere in Outlook's File menu), or you could do it programatically with VBA - which means an ActiveX control.
