    Here is my entry - it was done with VS2005 and VSTO support for Outlook 2003 and SSK (settings are default).
    If you install the addin and the toolbar and/or folders doesn't show up, check if you have installed the following:

    Outlook 2003
    The Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0
    Outlook 2003 Service Pack 1
    Outlook 2003 Primary Interop Assemblies
    The Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office runtime

    (How to Install VS tools for Office runtime:,vs.80).aspx">,vs.80).aspx)

    Looking forward to any comments.

    I've got all that's needed downloaded and installed but it looks like to me that you've got a link wrong perhaps

    The Outlook 2003 Primary Interop Assemblies link is the same as the Visual Studio Tools link ..if I'm wrong then I don't have it running for some reason

    is it a must that you have office 2003 sp1? .. I installed sp2 yesterday
    I can't wait to check this out!


    <edit>I found and installed the Outlook PIA's but it's still not there any configuration in Outlook I missed?</edit>

    Make sure you have SSK installed - also, check the disabled items in Outlook (Help->About->Disabled Items) and COM Add-ins dialog (Tools->Options->Advanced->COM Addins).
