MAPI support for Tasks, Notes, Contacts, and Appointments

Does Extended MAPI provide support for accessing Tasks, Notes, Contacts, and
Appointments for a profile? Any links to how to do this?

If not, what are my alternatives?
Thanks,

Yes, but only by decoding the named properties by hand. See
www.cdolive.com/cdo10.htm for a list of most of those, and KB Q195656 for
how to unmunge the propsetIDs from CDO to ExMAPI style. See the docs for
GetNamesFromIDs and GetIDsFromNames for how to code with named properties.

Then see http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ;EN-US;q266353
to be reminded that Microsoft don't want us to be doing any of this stuff,
they recommend using the OOM instead. The reverse-engineering that people
have done works okay, just be aware that it's not the official way to do
it.

Great info...thanks.
One more question though. What do you mean by OOM?
thanks

Outlook Object Model, using outlook automation to do tasks/etc. That's
supported and the recommended way, it just has a bunch of restrictions
(performance, can't run from service, can't run multiple at once, etc).
