Hello Henry,

Thanks for the advice.  I think it would be wise for us to take it, especially 
with the samples now being open-sourced.

I still would like to sync the PST store with a C# provider if that can work.  
The problem isn't technical, it's just that there aren't too many C++ 
application developers ( not counting embedded ) out there compared to .Net 

The more code we have in .Net the better chance we have in attracting new 
developers.  Hence the MAPI/.Net bridge.

Best regards,

As far as I know MAPI is implemented _only_ for Windows and _only_ by MS.

So guys I would seriously encourage you using Wrapped PST architecture
for this project.
It is not late so far.

Just imagine that providers is loaded in the several profiles.
By several processes. And event one process can create several instances.
And all of them are working simultaniously.

PST is well tested provider and using it as a base is more than start.
