In outlook 2003 and 2007 I was able to add a custom task bar to the bottom of the outlook window.   I like to work oldest at the top and newest at the bottom so it is less motion to have the tool bar at the bottom with some key buttons.   I get 400-600 emails a day and can't afford the lost motion.

I just switched to outlook 2010 and I can't find a way to get a row of buttons at the bottom of the outlook window.   I can see how to add buttons to the quick access tool bar and I see how to customize the ribbon.   What I want to do is get that customization at the bottom of the outlook window.

Please help.... Frustrated Outlook 2010 user

I've found these in my own google searches.  These help with customizing the current ribbon and quick access toolbar at the top of the outlook window.   I need to create a second ribbon or quick access toolbar at the bottom of the outlook window just above / below the status bar.

Is there a way to add functional buttons to the status bar at the bottom of the outlook 2010 window?

jondrejik--In that case, I do not think it can be done.  This reference is very comprehensive and does not indicate, though you may want to study it..

Concerning Status Bar, the options available can be seen by right clicking on the Status Bar.
