well, the first part

-resourcestring

{$IFDEF RESSTRING}
resourcestring
{$ELSE}
const
{$ENDIF RESSTRING}
  SNoMapi = 'MAPI services are not available on this system';

if a compilation constant RESSTRING is defined, SNoMapi is declared as resourcestring, and if it's not the case is a const.

note apart, resourcestring replaces LoadStr(), Delphi 3 introduced the possiblity to easily place constant strings as a resource with the new keyword 'resourcestring'.

-raise

The Raise keyword creates an exception object that is passed to the Delphi exception handler.

raise EMapiUnavailable.Create(SNoMapi);
creates/raises a exception, the exception object is the result of calling EMapiUnavailable.Create(SNoMapi) so this last call create an objetc.

- FOnMapiError(Self, ErrorCode);

FOnMapiError is a event error (an object), it is a member of TMapiControl, the exact type is TMapiErrEvent.
The arguments passed to the constructor of this object are "Self" and "ErrorCode", so I guess this object requires to be constructed two arguments, an object and a error code to raise and event informing an error. In some part of the code, this exception needs to be catched.

so the procedure TEmail.CheckMapi, check for a variable (boolean I guess) and if its not available, raise an exception with the text defined in SNoMapi

- DoMapiError(MapiResult);
Is a procedure whose only one functionality is to generate a event error (FOnMapiError)
