You need to install outlook on the server, however your code will be running under whatever user your anonymous asp.net account is using so you'll only see their contacts. Also Office apps are not suitable for server-side automation and you'll run into
a lot of problems trying to do this.

It'll be something to do with security or permissions. There are loads of pages on this issue if you google the error message you are getting. Automating Outlook from asp.net simply isn't supported, Microsoft have never said that you can get it to work.
