You are correct in saying you can use the com stuff no matter what your
using so if your comfortable with MFC more power to you.  Now as for your
question what I think your looking for is the Outlook Object model which is
called the OOM.  Here is a link to it and you can interface with all the
calendar and tasks and everything with it.  I use the Pocket Outlook Object
Model to do this on a PDA better known as POOM

I saw the Microsoft Outlook View and a few other controls in the com list of
toolbox controls. What ones do I use and how? BTW, you can use those in .net
I messed with the MediaPlayer control and it's pretty cool...
