A Mail related question (MAPI)

I want to a project in which
all the new Mails and Appointments
in MS-Outlook must be read and entered into the database. Is there any MAPI function or please tell me how I can get the new mail messages and appointments from MS-Outlook?

You use the MAPI OLE objects and their interfaces.  Roughly:

1) Select a profile.
2) Use that profile to logon
3) Open the mail store
4) Enumerate the mail store, searching for your definition of "new"

If you hit any items in #4, you can query their content or attributes.

A book like "Inside MAPI" will provide all the samples you need. A reference for all the interfaces is in the Patform SDK, as well.
