Outlook version
Outlook 2016 32 bit
Email Account
IMAP
My system
Windows 10 Pro, latest updates. MS Office 2016.

My design
My design is to create a form, and have it installed on a remote (school) network so teachers can use it. A teacher (using Outlook) selects the form as a new email and fills it out. When they press 'send", it gets sent to my computer. I can then retrieve the information from the form to enroll the teachers in our program.

Actions to enable forms
  1. I have modified the registry as found in 'Registry changes to enable forms" to allow me to create and (I think) receive this one particular form via email.
  2. Registry looks like this: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Forms\TrustedFormScriptList has 2 entries, IPM.Note and IPM.Note.BFTApplForm.
  3. Registry also has Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Security key with DisableCustomFormItemScript"=dword:00000000
  4. I customized the ribbon to turn on 'Developer" so I can get to the form options.
  5. I turned on TrustCenter/Email Security to allow scripts in shared folders and in public folders.
Create Forms
I created a custom form, not using any standard fields - all custom. Items include teacher name, grades taught, etc. I saved the form in "Personal Forms Library" with the name 'BFTApplForm', which matches what I put in the registry.

Testing
I tested by creating an email on my computer using the form, filled out the fields (garbage data), and hit 'send'. The send-to address is hard-coded and successfully sends me an email. However, the body of the email I get is blank. I tested it a dozen times and they always show up blank.

Another Bug
And then intermittently, Outlook disables my ability to edit forms. The option to "Design a Form" disappears. I have gotten it back a few times by restarting Outlook, but it's broken again. I can't edit my form.

Help, Please
How can I see the fields in the emailed form? and how can I tell Outlook to allow me to edit my form?
