Developing applications using MAPI

Domino® Designer Release 6 and later supports the messaging application program interface (MAPI), which allows mail integration between Domino and a MAPI-compliant messaging application, such as Microsoft™ Outlook, Microsoft Office applications, or user-written C++ programs.

To support MAPI, Domino includes these service providers, which provide access to the Domino message, directory, and transport services from simple or extended MAPI clients:

  • Address Book provider
  • Message Store provider
  • Message Transport provider

Using the MAPI classes and methods supported by the Domino MAPI service providers, you can write C++ programs to manipulate Domino objects.
