There is information in the platform sdk and on,
which mainly documents the programming interface for mapi clients and
servers.  Should be enough to get you seriously started, though.  Some
investigation of your own will probably be necessary, too.

There are sample MAPI clients floating around in various
places, as well.  I'd recommend starting there.  There are lots of other
mapi clients on the web, too, but they're probably too complicated to be
really useful during the development phase.

I can't speak for wine policies, but we (ReactOS) really like it when
the code is written in a very windows-like way - don't assume you're
running on unix, and it'll make it easier for us to use your work too.
