There is no quick answer for your question. MAPI is a complex API. Not many people bother to learn it. It's been years since I've needed to work with it.

You might want to start here, Outlook 2010: MAPI Reference.

Then download the SDK from Microsoft and find examples that are similar to the tasks you want to accomplish, and morph those to fit your needs.
