MS Access custom ribbon - can't seem to get it working

I have been trying to create a custom ribbon in MS Access 365 so that when others/users open the frontend of the database they will see a custom ribbon instead of the standard MS Access ribbon.

I created the table and started the XML (not my forte), but almost all the examples use a schema from 2006 (the only one I found that wasn't 2006 was this one which my xml editor complains about <customUI xmlns:x1=""> - with or without the ":x1") I get the error "no declaration found for element 'customUI' for the schema.

I am also now getting an error everytime I open an email in outlook.  This started happening after I tried to open the access customizations.exportedUI file in the XML editor.

Any help with the problems and created a correct ribbon would be appreciated.
