Pocket Outlook Object Model wrapper for .NET CF

I organize my work (and a fair bit of my life) with the Outlook task list. In Outlook I have a customized view that shows all tasks due today, grouped by priority. This feature does not exist on the Pocket PC so I implemented a simple task manager with embedded VB which I used a lot on my old iPAQ.

 I didn't want to install the VB runtime on my new iPAQ 4150 so I decided to rewrite it in .NET CF. .NET CF 1.* does not support calling COM components so I had to write my own POOM wrapper.

You can download the POOM wrapper with full source code here. I will release the app I built with it one day.
