Documentation on COM object in Notes 6 for VB developers

Is there any documentation for the new COM object in Lotus Notes 6 for Visual Basic developers? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Lastly, how do I retrieve the Internet message header from my VB code?
I'm not sure what you're referring to. There is a COM interface to the Notes client, but it's not new in version 6 -- it's been around since 5.0.2b.

There is a lot of documentation and examples for COM in the Domino Designer help file. For starters, refer to the document "Accessing the Domino Objects through COM ," and the documents it links to contain some presentations and examples of using COM from Visual Basic to using Notes client back-end functions.
