I am a VB Programmer, developing a COM Add-In for Outlook
I have desinged a custom task form and published it. The tasks created using my
custom form shows my icon in the tasks folder. But when I changed the existing
taskitem's messgeclass to that of my custom form, its icon doesn't  change. I
have already done the same successfully with mailitems. Is it possible to change
the icon of taskitems created using Outlook's default form?
