Update: v1.15.2, 28-Apr-2015

Added minimal support for importing EML / RFC822 / MIME files into an existing message, through using a new method: vbMAPI_MailItem::Import(FileName, Type), where Type must be ImportType_RFC822. This feature requires Outlook 2002 or newer to be installed (for IConverterSession support).
Update: v1.14.4, 23-Jul-2014
Fixed: vbMAPI_Session::OutlookSendReceiveAll was hanging due to an event problem introduced in v1.14.3
Update: v1.14.3, 26-Jun-2014

Only used when the Display method of the vbMAPI_MailItem object is called modelessly (first argument is False), and is currently only triggered by clicking the 'Send' button on the Outlook form. The command string parameter passed to the event is "BeforeSend" (giving us scope to add further commands to the same event at a future date).
