How do I move Add-In buttons to customized ribbon Outlook 2010

I have a piece of software that intergrates into Outlook 2010.
When it adds its icons it adds them into the Add-ins tab in Outlook itself which I would expect.
However, I want to create a new Group on the Home tab with icons/commands from this add-in within the group.

This is appearing to be a very difficult task, I think it used to be possible on older versions of Outlook didnt it?

I dont want to download any third party applications to do this for me, I just want to be able to sort this issue myself, hopefully very easily and quickly

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

I have no idea how to do that. I have installed some software and I would like the buttons on the Home Ribbon, I would have thought this would be an easy task, given that I have the add-in already in Outlook, I just wanted it easily accessible for users?

RPUKsupport--Regrets.. This is all I can suggest.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa942955.aspx  is pretty straight forward (with links and videos), but you do need Visual Studio.

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.
