Do data modules survive for the session?

If I create a datamodule to hold objects in my Outlook add in (on the reading pane) will this survive the add in being used in the pane after the pane has been closed?

Will I be able to access that data when a new reading pane is opened?

Hello Russel,

I assume your add-in creates a pane and shows the pane in the Reading pane. If the datamodule is created in the pane, then it will be displosed when the pane gets disposed by the forms manager; note that this may occur in an unpredictable moment. If you need the datamodule to be available independently, you can create it in the add-in module, not in the pane.
