Hi Experts, I am trying to forward an Outlook form.  Thing is like this.  My manager received the form filled by one of his employee.  After that he wants to forward the same form to few different people.  What should I do?  Here, when I hit the forward button in the form, outlook doesn't allow me to enter the email ids.  Thanks in advance.

Past security patches to Outlook were also aimed at making it more difficult for a virus to use Outlook to transmit itself via e-mail. This aspect of the patch, however, means that some Outlook features (like the ability to forward custom forms by email) will no longer function at all unless special work-around instructions have been provided.

Microsoft has provided two ways to customize the security settings that may resolve your problem:
1. In Microsoft Exchange Server environments, administrators can customize the security settings by installing a special Outlook custom form in a public folder and configuring security options for individuals and groups.
2. In Outlook 2002 and 2003, end users can allow access to particular file attachment types that the security features normally block. However, administrators can block this customization with the new security form for Outlook 2002.

Hi puppydogbuddy,
Thank you for your help.  I found the easy way to resolve this issue.  You just need to go to open the form in Design mode.  Next you need to click on Action tab.  There you see all the actions Reply / Reply All / Forward etc.  You just need to enable them and you the functionality.  Thank you again for your help.
