I've only used it for this case:

There's an explanation here: https://www.howto-outlook.com/downloads/mfcmapi.htm


MFCMAPI provides access to MAPI stores to facilitate investigation of Exchange and Outlook issues and to provide developers with a sample for MAPI development.

Less technical; You could say that MFCMAPI is a low-level mailbox editing tool. It’s designed for expert users and developers only so pretty much all safety nets are missing and making a mistake could result in total destruction of your mailbox data.

If this doesn’t like something for you, it’s best not to use this tool with any important data of which you don’t have a backup.

Doesn't sound too appealing, right? Well, it's not. The user interface is VERY VERY technical, so many pitfalls.
