Outlook Forms Creation

I am using Office 12/Outlook, and tried to create a new form modifying the

"message" form. I have published it to the folder and to the forms, and have

also run it to ensure it works. When I tried to test it, the recipient

received nothing but a blank email. Did I miss a step?

Yes, you missed an important step. For a message form to work fully, it must

be published to the Organizational Forms library on your company's Exchange

Server or to the Personal Forms library of each user. Publishing it to a

folder isn't enough.

You might want to review the information about prerequisites for and

limitations of custom message forms in these articles:

Thanks Sue. I have tried to publish to the Organizational Forms library, but

get a "MAPI" error message. Any suggestions on that? It did not work even

with administrative rights.

Not knowing exactly what you mean by "administrative rights," it's hard to

say. To publish a form, you need write access to the folder. And for best

results, you should be using a mail profile that connects directly with the

server rather than one using cached Exchange mode.
