Question

MAPI is an acronym for "Messaging Application Programming Interface". It is a set of C functions placed into a code library known as a Dynamic Link Library (DLL).

MAPI is a proprietary Microsoft technology and does not embrace the open Internet Standards (RFCs).

Answer

Although MAPI provides an interface for third parties to use in order to send mail, it relies on proprietary Microsoft technology in order to process that mail.

While GMS software complies with all Internet standards, it also supports Microsoft’s proprietary MAPI interface via the GMS Collaboration Server and so GMS does support the use of MAPI via the collaboration module.
