Verification of user credentials and message synchronization

Jul 3, 2013 at 8:24 PM
I went over the MAPI documentation in MSDN and also the provided samples. I have some general questions regarding MAPI and the wrapped PST store provider.

1- Can the wrapped PST store provider synchronize the messages itself (using replication API) or there should be Transport provider for it?

2- I read in MSDN that the transport provider performs the verification of credentials. If this is the case, then can wrapped PST check for the user's credentials? If so, where should it be done?

You can invoke the replication API as needed - you don't necessarily need a transport provider.

In the WrapPST sample, the "testDoSync" method is not called anywhere in the code so it is not executed according to the "Log".
Where this method should be called to function properly?

That would be up to you. Maybe you're syncing every few minutes, or maybe you've hooked into the UI and provided a "sync now" button. Or more likely, both.
