Here's a great way to hook up blink(1) up to Microsoft Outlook. Github user @sajingeo created a nicely-written Python script "outlook.py" that polls queries Outlook and then calls "blink1-tool". You don't need to be running Blink1Control to get this to work. (if you are, just use the "blink1control-tool" cmdline program instead of "blink1-tool"). He also includes a handy batch file to start it all off. Thanks sajingeo!
