This topic provides information about using Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) to develop messaging applications.
MAPI can be used to access items and folders within public and private stores, as well as the properties stored along with each item. MAPI is used by various industry-standard e-mail clients, such as the Microsoft® Exchange client, all versions of Microsoft Outlook®, and Outlook Express. Developers can create clients that use MAPI, as well as MAPI servers and MAPI forms handlers. The information here only applies to MAPI client applications that access Exchange.
MAPI is a mature mechanism used to access information in Exchange, and provides some capabilities available in no other API. However, MAPI does not work well outside an intranet, maintains an open connection for the duration of the MAPI session, and can be difficult to learn.
