Use Crowd as a group directory in Outlook?

Hi all,

We use Crowd as a proxy ("delegated authentication directory"?) for our corporate Active Directory domain.  That way, we manage group membership lists instead of going through corporate IT every time we need a group membership change.

Whenever we're going to bring down a Crowd-linked application (such as JIRA), we of course want to email all active users to alert them of the expected down period.  So far, we've just queried the JIRA database for a list of email addresses, copy/paste into an email, and send...

Instead of this manual process, is there instead a way to have Outlook use Crowd as a group directory – and thus allow us to just send an email to "crowd/jira-users"?

That would be quite useful, but you'd need to have a connector for Outlook to enable it to read Crowd data - I don't think anyone has written one yet.
