Outlook Addin and 64-bit Office

The Soup Mail Outlook Addin works successfully on Windows XP/Vista/7/8 64-bit but only when the 32-bit versions of Office is installed (which is the default installation).  See extract below and link to website, where Microsoft themselves recommend that you install the 32-bit version of Office when using Addins for Office:

"If users in your organization depend on existing extensions to Office, such as ActiveX controls, third-party add-ins, in-house solutions built on previous versions of Office, or 32-bit versions of programs that interface directly with Office, we recommend that you install 32-bit Office 2010 (the default installation) on computers that are running both 32-bit and 64-bit supported Windows operating systems."

Note:  We will continue to investigate Office 64-bit support in the future, but the current recommendation is to install Office 32-bit when using the Soup Mail Outlook Addin.
