Is there a way to build a custom ribbon in Outlook 2007 without purchasing

Visual Basic or C# apps? I searched the Internet and could only find a

reference that using Visual Basic or C# in the Visual Studio 2005 suite is

needed for the add-in. Further, Visual Basic Express does not have all of

the features needed and therefore it could not be used. Can a ribbon be

built without spending $ for these apps?

The only way to work with the ribbon in Outlook 2007 is with a COM addin.

What language you use doesn't matter as long as it can create a COM addin

for Outlook.

Thanks Ken...I appreciate the feedback. Do you know of any COM add in apps

that are freeware?

What do you mean by COM addin apps that are freeware? Are you looking for

free COM addins or a free development language? I know of no development

language that can be used to develop COM addins that is free, but I don't

know every language out there.
