  • Can't do that in an ECE without using the Outlook Object Model.

    You can retrieve Outlook.Application COM object using IOutlookExtCallback interface, then use OOM to handle the Application.ItemContextMenuDisplay event to insert your own menu iterms.

  • By "mapi", do you mean you are writing an Exchange Client Extension (ECE)?
