Creating a Ribbon menu for Outlook 2007
Expand the Toolbox sliding window in Visual Studio 2008, and you can find
the controls that support the Ribbon menu under Office customization.
Next, drag-and-drop the controls that are required for your development
inside your group control in the Ribbon. In this example, you are going to
use the Button control.
The Outlook Ribbon menu is quite different from other Office applications.
The Ribbon menu varies for each Outlook region. For example, for reading
a mail, you will see different Ribbon menu commands to those for an
appointment and so on. To view your add-in that has the Ribbon menu,
you need to specify the Ribbon types.
