    Outside of Visual Studio is there any way to add a custom ribbon button in Outlook 2010?

    If you create a macro in Outlook 2010, then go to File-->Outlook Options-->Customer Ribbon, and change the "Choose Command From" to "Macros", then you should be able to add a button to a tab.

    Thanks Ken, I guess I should have been more clear, is there no way to add a button via code except visual studio? If I customize the ribbon manually can I change the text dynamically?
