MAPI profile configuration

These properties are computed by service providers. A provider's implementation of the ServiceEntry function can use these properties to discover the profile name.

Client applications can use these properties as a convenient alternative to obtaining the profile name by examining the PR_DISPLAY_NAME (PidTagDisplayName) property in the MAPI subsystem's status table row.

These properties may not be unique across time, for example where a profile is deleted and later recreated with the same name. MAPI furnishes a totally unique PR_SEARCH_KEY (PidTagSearchKey) property in a hard-coded profile section called MUID_PROFILE_INSTANCE.
