I set the IdMso to TabHome, however, it still creates a new ribbon, instead of adding the group to the existing ribbon.
Please help.

Hello Mimi,

Please make sure that the Home tab exists on the ribbon.

Isn't TabHome the build ribbon of Outlook, the most left one when outlook starts?

Hi Mimi,

Please check out the Ribbons property of the ribbon tab component. Does it contain the OutlookExplorer value?

Hi Mimi,

Could you send a sample project which can reproduce the issue to the support e-mail address (see readme.txt)?

Hi Mimi,

I have just found that in the Explorer of Outlook 2010 there is no such IdMso (I mean the TabHome). Instead you need to use the TabMail value instead.

BTW You can download Office 2010 controls IDs here.

Thank you for providing me with a sample project.

Thanks a lot. Most examples I have seen use TabHome :-)
