Is it possible, using vb.net, to create a pop-up window within Outlook after selecting an option from a customized ribbon?  In short, I'd like to be able to add a small window to Outlook that allows me to enter data from within Outlook.  The ability to add a form would work perfectly. Any direction on how to accomplish would be appreciated.  thanks.

I'm using Outlook 2010 and VS 2010.  Do you know if the above will work in 2010?
