Hello Karim,

You need to handle the PropertyChanging event of the Ribbon tab component. If the context is an Outlook.Explorer, PropertyType = rcptVisible, and the DefaultItemType property of the Outlook.MAPIFolder returned by Explorer.CurrentFolder is olMailItem, then set Value := True; otherwise, set Value := False.

Hello Karim,

To check if the code fragment above works, you can drag a task or contact to that folder and check if selecting it hides the tab.
