OL2007, VSTO C#.

I have a custom drop-down item on the read email ribbon that appears when

the user opens an email, allowing the user to select a custom "Processing

Department" tag for the email. They can choose one of 15 custom

classifications.

I also want that drop-down icon to appear when a user is previewing an email

from the main Outlook window so they can classify the email without having

to open it.

Is there any way I can embed that ribbon custom drop-down item into a form

region (which displays below the email body preview window) so I can reuse

it's functionality? (Each processing department listed in the drop down

items has a unique icon we created).

You can use a drop-down in a form region but not a ribbon control. It

shouldn't be too hard to replicate the functionality though.
