//TO DO: If you use the Microsoft Outlook 11.0 Object Library, uncomment the following line.
//using Outlook = Microsoft.Offic e.Interop.Outlo ok;

namespace ConsoleApplicat ion1
public class Class1
public static int Main(string[] args)
// Create the Outlook application.
Outlook.Applica tion oApp = new Outlook.Applica tion();

// Get the NameSpace information.
Outlook.NameSpa ce oNS = oApp.GetNamespa ce("mapi");

// Log on by using a dialog box to choose the profile.
oNS.Logon(Missi ng.Value, Missing.Value, true, true);

Console.WriteLi ne("searching folder");

// Alternate logon method that uses a specific profile.

// change the profile name to an appropriate value.
oNS.Logon("Your ValidProfile", Missing.Value, false, true);

// Get the default Contacts folder.

Why not try Advanced Outlook Express Repair at http://www.datanumen.c om/aoer/ ? It recovers several important Outlook Express dbx files for me and is really helpful!
