>>I need to add a icon in outlook express

You can't - Outlook has a COM interface, Outlook Express hasn't, thus you cannot extend it.

The question states:

"I want to access the component of the outlook express"

So, why are you all posting links to Outlook?

Dear srinivasanmr

I think you forgot this question. I will ask Community Support to close it unless you finalize it within 7 days. You can always request to keep this question open. But remember, experts can only help you if you provide feedback to their questions.
Unless there is objection or further activity,  I will suggest to

     "delete this question"

since you never gave more feedback.

Hmm, I think "You can't" is - even though disencouraging - a valid answer :o)

Hi griessh,
    We can add additional functionalities to Outlook by Macros and Add-Ins.

     Here jkr states, it impossible. If some codes that in codeproject and slipstick sites showing it is possible.

     then how can we (me and johanhz ) agree jkr with jkr's statement.

thanx

Easy for you to complain with the recent EE loading times. If I wouldn't know these points won't hurt you, I'd not reward you them to you :-)
