Dear Experts

I have designed a new form for composing all new messages.

And now i have saved it under personal forms library as form as well as an outlook template file.Now the problem is when i click on New for composing New Message the form designed by me isnt appearing by default.I have to explicitly say Choose Form for each time iam composing a new message.Is there a way to specify the form designed by me as the default form for composing messages

right-click the folder, and then click Properties. In the "When posting to this folder box," click your custom form, and then click OK. New items that you create may use the custom form instead of the default Outlook form.

uhm - that's right-click your inbox folder since that's the form you want to change.

btw, this only works for OL2000 (which you are using) it doesn't work in prev versions.
