In Outlook, custom forms are typically published to a forms library so that only one copy of a form is stored on your computer. Individual items contain a Message Class field that indicates which form to use to display the data that is contained in the item. When you publish custom forms to a forms library, Microsoft Exchange Server-based computers and Outlook use considerably less resources and bandwidth because the form itself does not need to be stored within each individual item.
There are many questions to take into account when you are deciding where to publish a form:
Where we can publish?
Now we can see where we can publish these custom forms.
Outlook forms solutions can vary greatly, especially because Outlook has a number of different types of standard forms.

I want to popualte a combo box in 2007 Outlook form by linking it to a list of terms in excel or notepad. This way it can be easily updated by people on my server, and allow the form to have any options people wnat in the dropdown.
Also, after a dropdown choice is picked (i.e the company we are shipping to), I want the next field over "address" to auto popualte according to the combo box selection.
Finally, I want to have two buttons, Approve and Decline. Approve should send the form and Decline should reply, sending the form back to the sender. If possible they should allow for editing before completing these actions.
