Visibility of add-in in Outlook 2003
Is it possible to control in what windows the add-in will be appearing in Outlook 2003?

Basically, I need my add-in to appear in the message view windows (both new message and reading an existing one), but not in the main window.
Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Diego,

Please check the section "Outlook toolbar and main menu" in Command bar UI components. Is this what you are looking for?

Well, I'm not sure I found what I needed but at least I can ask for it properly now.
I need my add-in to show in Outlook 2003 inspector windows and not explorer windows.
Is that feasible?

Hi Diego,

Yes, it is. Which component do you use in the add-in module for Outlook command bars?
.NET, Extended MAPI, Windows Phone & RT

Hi Diego,

If you need to show commandbar controls in a custom or builtin toolbar in inspector windows of Outlook 2003, you need to use the ADXOlInspectorCommandBar component. Also, please see http://www.add-in-express.com/docs/net-outlook-addins.php.
