I''m looking at making an add on for outlook 2003, I have found some information but still am lacking any real examples I can see to get a better idea before I embark on this project, I know how to do the project stand alone, just need to look at working it into outlook, anyone have any references or anything for doing addons to programs like such?

Typically, most Microsoft add-in support uses COM. I'm not familiar with Outlook in particular, but I'm fairly sure you'll run into some COM stuff. I would at least get aquainted with that.

Yep, COM is the way to go. Search Google for "Sue Mosher" or check out her site at http://www.slipstick.com - that should get you started.

Add-ins for Outlook. Sheesh, programmers are getting masochistic these days...

The COM API is the same in any case - it''s just a matter of syntax. Python code should be trivial to read even for someone who doesn''t know the language.
