Email Message Forms in Personal Forms Library


G

Guest

We recently upgraded to Windows XP. In our prior version of Windows, I was
able to type a new mail message in Outlook, then choose "Tools-Forms-Publish
Form As" and give the form a name and save it to my Personal Forms Library.
When I needed this particular message, I could go into Choose Form-Personal
Forms Library and bring up this message.

In Windows XP, the "Forms-Publish Form As" is no longer available under
Tools in Outlook. My personal forms library is still there, and existing
forms can still be used. However, I cannot make any changes to the existing
forms, nor can I figure out how to save new forms.

Any help will be appreciated.

The version of Windows shouldn't matter. You didn't tell us the version of Outlook.

In any case, you might want to try resetting the menu bar in View | Toolbars | Customize.

I'm using Outlook 2003 (11.8010.6568) SP2. After poking around a little more
I find that I can open a message I've received from someone else, then go to
Tools-Forms and the "Publish Form As" shows up there. However, this command
does not show up if you are in a new mail message, a reply to an existing
message, or a forward to an existing message.

I could not locate the "Publish Form As" command when going to
View-Toolbars-Customize.

That's normal behavior if you're using Word as your email editor. Turn off Word as the editor before starting a session where you want to publish message forms from existing messages.

Thanks! I tried turning off Word as my Email editor, and can now type a
message and save it as a personal form. This method does change the
formatting of my auto-signature, but I can recreate that if needed.
