Once you publish the form, you need to run a free tool that Microsoft provides to apply it to existing items. See http://www.slipstick.com/dev/newdefaultform.htm (which also has info on how to do this for earlier versions).

Omsgclas.doc is a Word document that uses Office automation to change the message class for all items in an Outlook MAPI folder.

With Outlook, you can create a new form for items such as contacts and set a Contacts folder property so that all new contacts use the new form.

However, old contacts will still use the old form. The Omsgclas.doc document allows you to change the message class held for each item in the folder so that all existing items will use a specific custom form. This document works with all types of Outlook items.

The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

Omsgclas.exe

I have used this myself and it works great!

Did the trick here as well, Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a
way to change the default form comming from my winCE palmtop computer( HP Jornada 540) so I have to re-apply the fix whenever I enter
info originally on it. (I have the folding keyboard so it's not as bad as
you might think
