Actually, it is just he oposite ;-) Exchange is a messaging server with some
kind of collaboration platform features. But compared to Lotus Notes/Domino
it is nowhere a groupware platform (and will never be, just check Sharepoint
Technologies and you get the point).

Not at all. Actually, you are engouraged to not use CDONTS any longer
because it has been deprecated in Windows 2000 and is no longer part of
Windows XP/2003 & Exchange 2003.

Or just use the managed code wrappers Microsoft released in March 2003 to
use either C# or VB.NET and avoid all the hassle of going through C++.
