Hi All,

I'm trying to create an add-in for Outlook 2010 using VB.net 2010 and I'm unable to find any samples to get me started...

What I want to do is simply each time a mail message is opened is to have a custom button on the toolbar of the open mail message (with an icon) that when clicked diaplays the contents of the mail message that is open. (Actually my code will be doing more, but if I can just get started with the creation of the button, gettings it's event handler and the active message then I can go from there)

Any help/sample code would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks

The video was great and shows you how to create a custom ribbon with controls, but it doesn't show how to get the active mail item from there :-(

I really know how to get at the active mail item!

Thanks for your help so far!
