Number of Selected Items – Outlook 2007 is a simple plugin that adds a label to the standard toolbar which displays the number of items you currently have selected, similar to Windows Explorer. The main download contains the Office 2007 Plugin runtime required to install the plugin. If you already have this installed, you can download the .MSI version here

This little gem was created out of our own desire to see the number of selected items in Outlook 2007. We’re “stat” freaks and sometimes like to easily see how many support requests we responded to in a day or the number of sales in a certain time period. We know we could do some search queries in the new (much appreciated) Vista/Office 2007 search, but we usually only think to check these numbers when we’re actually viewing the emails. We’re also used to the Windows Explorer selected objects information shown in the status bar. FYI: This will show number of selected items in any Outlook view; Contacts, Tasks, Emails, etc.

Here’s a quick preview of how it looks (the red rounded rectangle is not shown in the actual program):

It’s free, it’s simple to install, and it does the job nicely. We hope you enjoy it!

    Just wanted to let you know that I found your web site (and your product MUVAUDIO2) through your publication of this free tool/plugin for Outlook. This Outlook plugin was something that I’d needed for bit.

    I ended up purchasing your MUVAUDIO product as a result of the Outlook plugin’s availability. I’m sure that was your company’s intent to begin with, but I thought y’all would want to know that your marketing effort worked!

  2. @Kurt: That’s exactly what we had intentioned though the current method of connecting to our other products just plain sucks. 🙂

    We’re about ready to release our new website that I hope does a better job of showing everything MuvEnum has to offer.
