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.
