I've written a few scripts that connect to the CDO Exchange message store using win32ole talking to Microsoft Outlook. If you read through some basic MSDN docs on the CDO API then you just wrap these in Ruby win32ole calls. If you want I can post a sampling here. It might be a little lengthy. It deals with Outlook Contacts...

Below is an URL to one thread I posted to awhile back regarding this subject. It contains some specifics that might be useful. I used such a setup to have a host PC serving up CDO contact data via XMLRPC calls to various non-Microsoft clients, such as wifi ARM Linux PDA's. That way various non-Outlook clients could still access message stores. http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Mail/Message/ruby...
