Does anyone know how to set Outlook as your default simple MAPI client? Or for that matter,  exchange as well?

If you have installed both Outlook and Exchange, the recently installed one will become default MAPI client.

That is what I figured but I am trying to develop an application that requires a default MAPI program to be installed. Although judgement tells me that one is installed, I would like to explicitly verify that one is set as the default, and which one that is. Do you know of such a way?

All you have to do is : in the options window, select the General tab, and check the "Make Outlook Express my default e-mail program" and "Make Outlook express my default simple  MAPI client" options. That makes outlook your default e-mail clients.
