Outlook 2003
slow on loading New mail screen with Add-in button

We have a simple add-in that loads two buttons when a new mail is created.

1 button links to a small table to give a list of account customer email address details and the 2nd is just an about button.

When using with Outlook 2003, the user selects new mail and the new mail screen takes an age to load. If they remove the add-in it is fine.

The add-in has no onload calls and nothing happens within our small add-in until the buttons are pressed..

Do you have any suggestions why in Outlook 2003 - this is happening

Many thanks

Hi Simon,

It seems you use MS Word as a default email editor. This slow loading is because MS Word has lots of command bars. Try to set the FastCommandBarSearch property to True. See the code snippet below:

procedure TAddInModule.adxCOMAddInModuleAddInInitialize(Sender: TObject); 
  FastCommandBarSearch := True;
