Outlook Express works very well with AppleScript.

Again, this is possible using AppleScript, although for Mac only:

on doSpeech theSpeech
    put "Victoria" into theVoice
    -- look in the Voices folder for a list of possibilities

    do "say " & quote & theSpeech & quote & " using " & quote & \
        theVoice & quote as AppleScript
end doSpeech
