I expect you will find it easier figuring out how to install your app
in the SendTo menu rather than making your app callable via MAPI. This
probably involves ShellExtensions but I believe there are utilities
that can be used to add any arbitrary application to the SendTo menu.
That may be enough for your application.

You might want to have a look at SpamBayes for an example of an
Outlook extension written in Python to get an idea of how you can
interface with Outlook.
