Printing Outlook 2003 forms wysiwyg



Ok, thought I'd post this to a group of people who I knew could help. Created
Outlook forms on 2000. Had to get the add-in to print the form wysiwyg. Great.
Got upgraded to Office 2003. Still needed the add-in to print. BUT, the
add-in on Outlook 2003 causes Outlook to crash when you print the form. Any
I was told to recreate the form with InfoPath, but how does that work for
the user? Will they have to email an attachment to be completed and then
forward to other people who have to further enter info on the form?

At first glance, InfoPath looks similar to Outlook's form setup.

Going forward, InfoPath is the replacement for what we all thought that Outlook custom message forms could do (but never really lived up to, at least not without jumping through a lot of hoops). I am not that familiar with InfoPath 2003, but I think it added some cool email capability with SP2. The best way to find out is to try it.

The XPrint add-in is supported only in Outlook 2000 and even there, has some serious limitations. See for alternative methods.
