The information in the "Remove a form from a forms library" Help topic does not apply to the Internet Mail Only installation option (IMO) of Microsoft Outlook 2000.


The Help topic information incorrectly refers to the Custom Forms and Manage Forms buttons that are only available in the Corporate or Workgroup installation.

In the IMO installation, you cannot delete a custom form. If you want to replace a custom form, you can create a new form which uses the same name and publish it in the same folder as the original.

NOTE: If you switch to the Corporate or Workgroup installation type, you obtain the ability to manage your custom forms. Microsoft recommends that if you do switch, you do not switch back.

To locate the Help topic, follow these steps:

  1. On the Help menu, click Contents And Index.
  2. On the Contents tab, double-click Customizing Microsoft Outlook.
  3. Double-click "Using Forms to Organize and View Items."
  4. Click "Remove a form from a forms library," and click Display.
NOTE: If you do not have the Customizing Microsoft Outlook topic, you did not add the Development Tools component.
