Hi *

I would like to implement a form replacement for outlook mail compose. That

displays the same form as the original mail composer, except that it injects

a new cntrol between the message and the subject. From VS .net environment.

Is this possible?

I know that outlook forms + VBS can does almost the same thing. Except that

it sends a winmail.dat, and buttons do not look exactly like in the original

compose form.

Is this possible? Or I must create a form and use the stupid vbs editor and

tools to develop this solution?

Thnx,

Tamas

Are you trying to create a mail form that can be sent and received and look

like what you designed? A Form Region would require registration of that

form region on every recipient's computer, preserving the data across the

Internet and various other things that require RTF and custom forms, and it

won't end up working right anyway the vast majority of the time.

See the information on sending custom forms over the Internet on

www.outlookcode.com. What you want to do would be even more unlikely to

work. And every recipient would have to use Outlook 2007 or later too.

I'd rethink your project, in my experience it just won't work in practice.
