Plaxo type functionality

Hello,

very impressive product!

Do you provide any functionality that allows one to mimic Plaxo functionality: they add their own buttons (not toolbars) to emails in preview, number of controls to contact form, etc. If you are not familiar with Plaxo, I can send screenshots.

Thanks

They almost certainly just sending an HTML form and Javascript. There's no mechanism to add any controls to a message body, and I know they're not using Outlook forms. It's all just HTML and Javascript.
You can probably do a View Source on a message and see the actual code they're using.
The downside is people who run locked-down copies of Outlook (ie. not allowing script or even not allowing HTML) will not get all the spiffy content & functionality.

Brad.

Hi Mike.

Add-in Express .NET works together with the Office Object Model to manupulate command bars/controls in Office applications.
It doesn't provide the functionality to manage HTML and Javascript in Outlook messages.
