I have no direct knowledge of this framework, but Brutus may help you;

	Project description:
	Brutus is an Exchange connector and development framework that offers
	access to all of MAPI and therefore to all versions of Microsoft
	Exchange from version 5.5 onwards. It is a complete wrapping of all
	of MAPI into a (large) set of CORBA interfaces. It enables any
	groupware client to integrate seamlessly into any organization with
	large Exchange deployments on an equal footing with MS Outlook. Being
	based on CORBA, it is platform independent, and works equally well on
	Linux, the BSDs, Windows, or wherever there is a CORBA implementation

HTH. It's available off of <freshmeat.net>.
