Outlook contact card Organization tab RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     Is there a possibility to display the Outlook contact card "organization" tab for non-Exchange Outlook profile?

    I have a local Outlook contact folder which contains the company contacts with organization relationship (each contact has the Manager property set). Is ther a posibility (even programmatic) which would allow me to se the organization tab of the contact card (when you go with mouse over an email address/mail recipient)?

    In case Outlook is configured in exchange environment I see that tab. In my case it is an IMAP Outlook configuration. 

    Thanks.

  • The small popup window with the "Organization" tab is not extendable.

    The best you can do is modify the contacts that you open from the Contacts folder to expose an extra tab or a form region.

  • No, that feature is Exchange specific.

    Outlook does not support any hierarchical relationship between Outlook contacts (unlike GAL).

  • Hi,

    Thanks for reply.

    Is there a way to emulate a GAL address book in case of an IMAP MsOutlook profile?

    Thanks.

  • Not unless you modify the form used to display these contacts - you will need to change the mesage class (e.g. IPM.Contact.MyContact) and design your own form.

  • Sorry,

      I do not see the connection between the contact card/organization tab and the need to design a new form for contacts. I would like the organization tab to be displayed in the email view.

    Thanks.
