Testing strategies differ depending on whether you are developing a client or service provider. Because a client application requires one or more service providers to operate, clients should be tested in an environment with different sets of service providers.

Service providers, however, should be tested in isolation before being integrated with other providers. MAPI provides tools that are meant to test the features of a service provider of a particular type. The MFCMAPI sample application shows how to test the features of an address book provider and works with a message store provider.
