Hi all,

Can you help me to start in my project for Outlook 2007 (VB.Net & ADx 2009).

I would like to have a AdxRibbonGroup with my buttons in the standard Mail Ribbon (When you compose a Mail)

Can you give the simple step to di this, and what it will happens if then a 2003 user install my Addin ?

Thanks

Anthony

Hi Anthony,

Yes, you need to add Ribbon two tab components onto the add-in module in order to have your controls added onto two built-in Ribbon tabs.

If you register your add-in on a system with Office 2003 installed and if you use primary interops, then some calls to the Outlook and Office object models will fail because of missing objects and members that were introduced in Office 2007.
