I doubt it is possible... For this kind of thing, you would usually uses the regular Outlook that come with Microsoft Office.

Outlook Express has been obsolete for so long I can't even remember the last time I actually saw anyone using it... It's a security nightmare, and has been removed from Windows ages ago

AFAIK, Outlook Express doesn't have an API to manipulate it programmatically (but Outlook does).You should probably send the mail directly from your C# code, without involving Outlook Express. Check out the System.Net.Mail namespace in MSDN, it contains everything you might need (including code samples) or use Outlook via VSTO.



I was wrong, check here
Reading and Writing Messages in Outlook Express[^]
and also this[^]

It's possible some your data were corrupted. To view proper data you may try to use next application.
It restores contacts, notes, calendars and the rest data in Outlook Express. See it below
