In addition to the other comments:

Here is a good place to start on articles about using Outlook & .NET
(including Exchange Server).

For a discussion on selecting development technologies for Exchange Server,
start here:

Is WebDav enabled by default on all Exchange 200/2003 servers or is it
something separate that would need to be setup on the server?

My sources tell me that yes! WebDAV is on by default on Exchange 2000 and
2003. It doesn't exist (and thus cannot be turned on) for Exchange 5.5
servers.

Hope this helps

Just in: The following Exchange Server WebDAV might be useful:

Great thanks a bunch. Now if WebDav wasn't so complex to use I'd be all set
:-)
