I was able to replace most of my existing C++ based sendmail.exe program with a Python script using pythoncom.mapi.
Great work!
However, I am not able to specify a different Reply-To address, because the mapi package does not support the FLATENTRY and FLATENTRYLIST structures.
Note: Working C++ code for specifying a different Reply-To address can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/300531

    OK, as a workaround it is possible to modify the reply-to address with a bit low-level code (see below). So, my problem is solved. Anyway, perhaps this could be a nice addition to the mapiutil package.

    code fragment to set the replyTo-Address

    def makeentry(typ, name_addr):
    return ((mapitags.PR_RECIPIENT_TYPE, typ),
    #(mapitags.PR_DISPLAY_NAME_A, name_addr),
    (mapitags.PR_DISPLAY_NAME_W, name_addr),
    )

    # ReplyTo-Address
    if replyTo:
    # replyTo is a unicode string
    replyToList = address_book.ResolveName(0, mapi.MAPI_UNICODE, None, [makeentry(mapi.MAPI_TO, replyTo)])
    props = [(mapitags.PR_REPLY_RECIPIENT_NAMES, replyTo),
    ]
    message.SetProps(props)
    replyToAddr = replyToList[0]
    for (pt, pv) in replyToAddr:
    if pt == mapitags.PR_ENTRYID:
    entryid = pv
    break
    #print "reply-to entryid (len %s): %r" % (len(entryid), entryid)
    flatentry = struct.pack("i", len(entryid)) + entryid
    #print "flatentry:", repr(flatentry)
    flatentrylist = struct.pack("ii", 1, len(flatentry)) + flatentry
    props = [
    (mapitags.PR_REPLY_RECIPIENT_ENTRIES, flatentrylist),
    ]
    message.SetProps(props)
