Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but there was no apparent group

for Outlook COM addins.

I've managed to add a button to the main window in Outlook, but I would like

to be able to do the same within a mailitem. The problem is I have no idea

how to do this, and so far searching the 'net has not revealed anything

useful. Any help in this area would be appreciated. I'm using VB6 for the

addin in case this has any impact on how to do this.

The "main window" is an Explorer. Open items use Inspectors, you would add

your UI to that Inspector just as you would to an Explorer.

The Inspectors.NewInspector() event will tell you when a new item is opened.

Testing the passed Inspector object in that event handler for

Inspector.CurrentItem.Class will tell you what type of Inspector is being

opened.

One thing to bear in mind is that if this is for Outlook 2007 then a

CommandBarButton for an Inspector will be relegated to the Add-Ins tab along

with any other old style UI. For Outlook 2007 you should be handling the

ribbon to provide UI.
