Hi Tim,
Well, at 5pm last Friday I posted:
"

I kept looking and thought I was saved when I found Receipe 10.16 in the
Python Cookbook but ....

I changed the following:

                self.oOutlookApp = Dispatch("Outlook.Application")
                #self.oOutlookApp =
gencache.EnsureDispatch("Outlook.Application")

Because gencache failed and I hade run makepy last week (I only get one day
a week to look at this).

Then the following failed because (as I found) olFolderContacts is not in
any of constants' dictionaries.

    ofContacts = onMAPI.GetDefaultFolder(constants.olFolderContacts)

So, sadly, I shall have to put this aside for another week and get on with
some work.  Any thoughts would be gratefully accepted.

TIA,
   Bill
"

and since then have been busy with work, and my other job, and the garden. 
Now I am back looking at this (and using WInUSB to talk to a Maxim 3421E etc 
etc but that's another story).  So any help today will be much appreciated.
Rgds,
   Bill
