I have been working a bit with IronPython to experiment with rapid  
development on the .net framework.  I have no idea about Outlook  
customization.  If I can assume that you are building some sort of  
plugin via an exposed interface and can build your own dll, then you  
can include IronPython in your project.  I recommend you seek out the  
embedding tutorials that come with the IronPython download.  Let me  
know how it goes.
