I am trying to add my very own Navigation strip to the Outlook 2007 Navigation Pane. I want it to appear amongst the 'Mail' 'Calendar' 'Tasks' 'Notes' panes on the Explorer View. I've been going through Outlook Object Model and VSTO library but it has not brought any solution.
I began to wonder whether expanding Outlook 2007 navigation pane programmatically is doable at all?
- If so, please could you point me at the right direction?
- Would I need to build the whole panel myself (brand new with all of the little strips) and replace the native one with it? Is that an option at all?
- Is there a method in VSTO that I can use to achieve the above?
- Any other suggestions very welcome. I am new to coding against Outlook and would love to know a lot about it.
