Wow!  The SRL Team has released an Addin for Outlook that connects to Team Foundation Server.  This is the task management tool that I have been waiting for.  You can generate a work item right from Outlook.  You can view queries, you can search your work items, you can even generate a work item based on content from an email.  I mapped the subject to the task title and the body to the description, but you can map any field you want.  Then it changes the subject line in the email to have the work item id.

Great work guys.  The only problem I had, is that I had to kill the outlook.exe process after installing this addin to get it to show up.  I think that was because I had ActiveSync running.

It would have been better if you could also add workitems to your tasklist

Hi guys.

This tool is exactly what I am looking for. I only have one problem, my server URL looks like this:

https://[servername]:[port]/[XXX].

However, I cannot use a "/" in the server name. It seems the tool only supports servers with such servername format:

https://[servername]:[port]

Is there any way for me to connect to my server with your tool?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Does this only work for 2007? What about 2010?
