MFCMAPI, or Microsoft Exchange Server Messaging API Editor, is a free mailbox editing tool for Microsoft Outlook that gives you access to MAPI stores. It’s mostly used by developers and experts for removing emails or adjusting hidden rules. Other useful tools for emails for Microsoft Exchange include SysTools Exchange Recovery and MailsDaddy OST to Office 365 Migration Tool.
If you’re only learning how to use MFCMAPI with little experience, you’ll want to save a backup copy of your Outlook emails and content. Making a mistake while using the app can result in a complete loss of all information and your account
Editing your Outlook mailbox
While Microsoft Outlook provides basic editing tools, such as move and copy, you can access some of the lower-level functions with MFCMAPI. It’s meant for more experienced developers who know how the Microsoft Exchange works.
Either way, making a backup of your data is always a good idea just in case you make a mistake. In essence, the most common features you’ll work on are folders, root containers, data files, subtrees, and much more than standard users wouldn’t see.
Dealing with folders
When dealing with Outlook folders, you can hide, unhide, move or delete them. Hiding and deleting folders works best when using the tools on folders you created that you don’t want anyone else to see. You can add properties to the folders to hide or unhide them, but moving and deleting require ticking boxes.
Standard user interface
The user interface for MFCMAPI looks like a standard file explorer. You can’t simply move folders around, as you need to input the specific function to make it happen on the server. There are action and tool buttons on the menu to help you identify the best way to manage the content.
Professional email account editing
MFCMAPI is an essential tool for experts who want to help someone manage their Outlook email account. It can also be beneficial for companies who want to clear emails or move folders to different locations.
However, it’s important that only developers and those who know how to use MFCMAPI manage the server folders. Any error can result in the entire account being blocked, broken or accidentally removed
