Python and MS Exchange

I'm using python 2.3 and Windows 2000 "Professional" to access a Microsoft
Exchange Server to monitor messages and perform various tasks around the
office.  My little program is attracted quite a bit of attention and I have
been asked to add some features, but I don't know how to do a couple of
things.  Can anyone either help me out with the details, or point me to
where I can get the information?  Here's my task list:

1.  Create a folder for the mailbox.  For example, I would like to have a
"Processed" folder where I can move messages once they have been processed.

2.  How can I check to see if a folder exists?

3.  Can I access the allotted size of a folder to determine if I have room
to post messages?

4.  How do I move a message to the folder I just created?

Thanks for any help you can pass my way.
