There are two types of section list entries: one that lists service provider sections and one that lists miscellaneous message service-specific sections. These two types of entries appear in mapisvc.inf using the following formats:
Providersprovider section1, provider section2, ...... provider sectionX Sectionssection name1, section name2, ......section nameX
Each section in the Providers entry maps to an individual section providing configuration information for a service provider that belongs to the message service. Each section in the Sections entry maps to a section that contains extra configuration information needed by the message service. Message service implementers define extra sections when they want to include special information that does not fit in the standard sections. Message services that have complicated configurations typically use the Sections entry to add extra information. Every message services section has a Providers entry with at least one section in the list; not all message service sections have a Sections entry.
Two examples of message service sections follow. The first section is for the Default Address Book service from the earlier illustration, a straightforward message service with a single service provider. The second section is for the MsgService service, a more complex sample message service with three service providers.
[AB] PR_DISPLAY_NAME=Default Address Book Providers=AB Provider PR_SERVICE_DLL_NAME=AB.DLL PR_SERVICE_SUPPORT_FILES=AB.DLL PR_SERVICE_ENTRY_NAME=DABServiceEntry PR_RESOURCE_FLAGS=SERVICE_NO_PRIMARY_IDENTITY [MsgService] PR_DISPLAY_NAME=My Own Service Providers=MsgService Prov1, MsgService Prov2, MsgService Prov3 Sections=First_Special_Section, Second_Special_Section PR_SERVICE_DLL_NAME=MYSERV.DLL PR_SERVICE_SUPPORT_FILES=MYSERV.DLL, MYXXX.DLL, MYZZZ.DLL PR_SERVICE_ENTRY_NAME=MyServiceEntry PR_RESOURCE_FLAGS=SERVICE_SINGLE_COPY 66040003=00000000
The Sections entry in the [MsgService] section lists two additional sections, one called [First_Special_Section] and the other called [Second_Special_Section]. The data that might appear in extra sections is meaningful to the specific message service. These sections appear following to illustrate extra sections.
[First_Special_Section] UID=13DB0C8AA05101A9BB000AA002FC45A 66020003=01000000 66000003=00040000 66010003=06000000 66050003=03000000
