Hi, how can I create a new folder in MS Outlook under "Personal Folders" which has a special TForm (?) in the right part (the part where the mails are displayed, the contacts are listed etc.).

I know how to create the new folder, but not how to make a new kind of form in the right pane that should be displayed when I select the new folder.

Thanks,
Uwe

Hi Uwe,

It is not possible to display a TForm instead of Outlook's "supergrid". But you can display a HTML page there.

Ok :-(

1) How can I display a HTML-page?

2) Is there really no chance to re-use these standard-form with columns like subject etc. E.g. Norton creates a new folder AntiSpam and lists mails there.

Thanks,
Uwe

1) See the WebViewOn and WebViewURL properties of the MAPIFolder interface.

2) Wait, it seems to be some misunderstanding here.
2.1) Do you need to display a Delphi form instead of the Outlook grid? It is not possible.
2.2) Do you need to customize a folder view? It is possible, see the CurrentView property of the Explorer and MAPIFolder interfaces.
