    Outlook Forms Icons (O98, WinNT)

    I am working on a form which is a direct copy of a telephone message form we already use, but when the original is used the icon next to the message in the inbox is a picture of a telephone - when mine is used it uses the standard email icon! The only icons I can find are on the properties page and both are telephones, so what am I missing?! <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    By the way, does anyone know how to set up icons so that they show different ones according to whether the message has been opened or not? This is not essential, but would be nice ...

    Many thanks in advance for any and all help!

    In design mode, the properties tab will let you change the icons to use. As far as I can tell custom forms have to use code to change the icon when the form is read. If this form is for multiple users you probably don't want to go there just for that functionality.

    Yes, I had found the properties tab contained the Change large/small icon buttons, but it didn't seem to have any effect! That is, I'd put a suitable icon on both but the message still came up with the standard email one. However, I also found an article on the MSKB about this (searching for outlook forms icons) that seemed to suggest that when I release the form to the organisational forms folder the icon will be picked up - in other words, as soon as it goes live MS says it'll work ... now do I trust their word?! I'd rather not have to find out it doesn't work when it's been released to the 250 odd people who work here!

    I agree about the changing the icon bit - I've haven't so much as found the equivalent of the VBE in Outlook yet, let alone tried any coding!

    Yeh, Org Forms has some major limitations.

    You might get the same result if you publish your form to a folder or public folder, then set it as the default. Just a guess...
