Know of an Access procedure to open eMails in a named OutLook Express folder, search 'n extract eMail addr in body text?

I routinely save failure notices from mail servers
bouncing mail back to me that I sent with invalid
address. I would like to write an access procedure
in my contacts database that would open the
bounced mail messages, find eMail address(es)
& write 'em to a table. Later, I could go through
the table, comparing eMail addrs found in there
against those in tblContacts. I could set a flag
in tblContacts records to indicate those I need
to call & request updated eMail address.

But do all the bounce messages identify the failed email address in a
predictable fashion?

No, but I've got working procedures that extract eMail addresses
from long text strings. They should do nicely. I just need help
opening the email msgs, reading their body text & saving that
to a memo field in a table record.
