Change font color of selective email addresses in outlook compose window RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am writing a outlook 2010 add-in using VSTO and C#. From my add-in's code I want to change the color of certain email addresses in outlook's compose window. The attached screen shot demonstrates what I want to achieve. In the screenshot note that the Tom email address has red colored font. That is what I am trying to achieve.

    Is this possible and if so what kind of approach should I take? even if it is possible by some setting or macro it should help me look in the right direction.

  • Hello Zodiac,

    The Outlook object model doesn't provide anything for that.

    As a workaround you can replace the inspector UI by using Form Regions (see the Complete Replacement layout). See Creating Outlook Form Regions for more information.
