Microsoft Exchange and Python

Hello, all-

About an hour ago I was asked I could use Python to connect into our
corporate Microsoft Exchange mail server to retrieve and process certain
emails.  Pulling out my copy of "Python Programming on Win32"
(Hammond/Robinson), I quickly -- really quickly -- was able to logon and
pull all of the subject lines out of my Inbox.  My team leader had to pick
his jaw up off the floor!!  I have since written an object allowing him to
access the server and list, choose, and process the specified messages.
Very cool, indeed.

My problem?  I would like to know all of the methods available to me using
the win32com.client Dispatch("Mapi.Exchange") interface.  I have looked in
the above book, as well as various on line help urls.  Please excuse my
ignorance...I am not that familiar with Windows APIs.  Any help you can
provide would be appreciated.
