Someone may be able to tlel you how to actually automate outlook to
retrieve e-mails, but I don't know how. However, I did find these two sites:
They both have products with trial downloads which they say can export
the e-mails to plain text files. You can then compare the e-mails from
outlook with the ones from your program.
When you do the comparison, whether you hash them or compare byte-by-byte
you may want to do it for the body of the message only otherwise you need
to worry about comparing the e-mail headers as well.
NOTE: I have not used either of the programs. I merely found them after a
quick Google search, and am taking what they say on their websites at face
From a post earlier in the week.
Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?
