seems you like adventureous programming (for my adventure of wiring the
portmonitor see http://www.transcom.de/whfc/writing.php )

However if you have such a MAPI agent (please don't ask me how to
write such a thing) then you can use the WHFC ole interface from there.

My portmonitor uses also the WHFC Ole interface for sending the
files. The portmonitor was the primary reason for the OLE inteface
since Windows has no good way of process communication.
