In order to do what you want to do, you may have to access email store
through exchange server.
There is a Visual Basic 6 application example on the SAS Enterprise
Integration Community Page, called "SAS Outlook Data Extractor" at
I read the code once very fast (meaning not very carefully).
Dispointingly, about the only thing about SAS in the whole thing is that
it saves extracted data in a sas dataset using SAS/Share provider. All the
heavy lifting (of opening the connection to the Exchange server and
talking to it using MAPI) seems to be done using ADO and CDO 2.1 -- I am
not saying this is not a simple trick to pull, but I was expecting
something like LDAP library engine -- which may or may not be in r9
(perhaps in SAS/Integration Technologies product).
