With your product and outlook 2007 Is it possible to:


1. Make my own custom form that is accessed (shown in outlook 2007 content area) clicking an icon in the left outlook panel?

2. Register a custom URL protocol that open up directly on that form and perhaps an item within that form? (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa767914(VS.85).aspx)



Are the "forms" mentioned in on your site in the .net section, ordinary WPF forms?

Hello Tim,

1. Outlook doesn't provide a way to customize thiat area.

2. No, this isn't supported. You'll need to use Win32 API to achieve this.

And Add-in Express panes are not WPF forms, they are descendants of System.Windows.Forms.Form.
