We have created a web application with the java mail functionality. Can you please tell me whether I can access outlook address book entries from the java mail application or not? If yes, can u please tell me how to do that?

Any access to an Outlook address book is beyond the scope of the JavaMail API.

If you have an LDAP service running on your Exchange Server, then you can access it as an LDAP service from Java, and get to the server's GAL (Global Address Book) that way.



But I don't know how you would access a local Outlook database, all local on a client, e.g. a PAB (Personal Address Book), or Contacts folder inside a PST (Personal Store file).



Maybe there is some ActiveX way. Or maybe you could, inside Outlook, manually export the addresses, from the PAG or Contacts/PST, as e.g. a CSV file and then read that, in the Java app.
