Have you gone through the sample code at wabaccess.sourceeforge.net?  
Based on samples, something like this should work:

for c in objSession.Containers.Count:
    ctr = objSession.Containers(c)
    for cid in ctr.Elements.Count
        print ctr.Elements(cid).Name
        print ctr.Elements(cid).Properties( PR_EMAIL_ADDRESS )
