Is the source code to MAPI Store Accessor available? It would be rather useful to see exactly how it access some of the MAPI stuff. And it would be interesting to see if it could be expanded slightly, for example:
1) Allow passing open flags (such as MAPI_NO_CACHE) when getting an item or a folder.
2) Do some initial troubleshooting when encountering exceptions that originate in MAPI Store Accessor, rather than having to come to the forums at the first hint of trouble.

Perhaps the source code could be made available to registered users?

Hi Jason,

No, the source code of the MAPI Store Accessor is not available. Anyway, thank you for the feedback. We will consider adding these features to the component.

OK - I can understand not wanting to make source code available. :D

Another feature that would be nice to see:
3) Get and set MAPI named properties, not just ones accessible via PR ID values.

Oh - and another one:
4) Open messages and folder using a string representation of an EntryID rather than the EntryID object. I'm trying to save a reference to a folder - easy enough with EntryID.ConvertToString(). But reloading the folder when all I have is the string - haven't found a way to do that yet.
