Reading OST and PST files

Hello, I bought the OEM version of your email for .Net product and am hoping you can point me to an example of reading OST and PST files with the example preferably in VB.Net or C#. Might you have such an example please? I have gone, as directed to: But it contains only the text of the Solution and none of the referenced Projects. Might you have a ZIP which I could download please? Regards Sean Howard
