I am working on creating a backup monitoring app for my final year project but I can't figure out how to read the backup emails into a database. I was hoping to be able to extract the emails from Outlook as a pst file or csv and open the file in the application it then stores the emails in a database and I can query the database such as what servers failed on that given day what servers passed etc. 

Ideally I would like to have had the emails automatically store themselves in the database without having to export the file from Outlook into the database but I'm not sure if I will have time for this functionality. Would anyone be willing to help me out with this please I'd greatly appreciate it! :)

This application is being made using ASP.NET Visual Basic in Visual Studio 2013.
