Right (trivial):

(defun org-open-outlook-url (uid)
  "Open an outlook format url"
  (interactive "sGUID: ")
  (w32-shell-execute nil (format "Outlook:%s" uid)))
(org-add-link-type "Outlook" 'org-open-outlook-url)

I've now got a little toolbar icon now in Outlook that will copy a link
which I can yank right into org, and org is capable of following it.
Very trivial modification of the macro above to get it to output
fully-formatted org-mode links.
