Default Testing capacitors in circuit.

I am wondering if there is a technique for testing circuit board mounted electrolytic capacitors in (or out of circuit if nessecary) using a multimeter?

I may have a bad cap. somewhere on my board and the thought of de-soldering all of them is less than appealing.

Thanks for any information.
