dxxd116 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello, Monks: I am trying to design an automation task with Microsoft outlook express. I went to Win32::OLE and want to use it to start outlook express. However, I can not figure out what the class ID or program ID it is for "Microsoft outlook express". Could anyone here help me figure it out? Thanks in advance.
