This appeared on a what is now a close thread and was answered by a guest Bob but unfortunately his solution doesn't appear to work with Outlook 2010.

I'd much appreciate help to work out how I get a new mail icon into my quick launch bar?

Thanks

Darryl

Which OS? If WinXP, you need to make a shortcut in the Quick Launch folder - or take the easy route and use quick icons - http://www.outlook-tips.net/2004/773/tip-103-quickicons/ - quickicons will create shortcuts for all outlook item types. You can choose the item types you want and it detects the correct path if you use 64-bit windows and 32bit outlook (just tested it).




If you want to create your own shortcut (using the windows option to create shortcuts) - you'll use


“C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\Outlook.exe” /c ipm.note




If you use 64-bit windows and 32-bit outlook you need to adjust the path:


"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\Outlook.exe” /c ipm.note




But.. if you use Windows 7, you can right click on the outlook icon on the taskbar and choose from the new item types.

BTW, if you can find the other post, i'll take a look at it - the steps should be identical for all versions.
