Hi All;
I heared that it is possible to add more functionality to MS outlook through MS Windows 2003 Group Policy. Actually I want to add button, that opens my own made outlook form. IS that possible through Group policy or not.

    Hi AhmedHashem.

    Sorry, I don't believe this is possible.  Group Policies are to control and enforce settings, not to add new features to a product's UI.  The link below is to a page containing a link (it's at the bottom of the page) to a download from Microsoft that describes pretty much all the policies for Office products and what they do.  I've read through it and I don't see anything about adding new features or functionality.
