Thanks for your reply (sorry I didn't see it sooner). The basic form region is made up of the standard to, cc, subject, and message fields and then an InfoPath control at the bottom. The form region is a "replacement" form as opposed to a partial region that exists in another form.

Using the simplest repro method, have the add-in cause the InfoPath control to create a new form using a template (we open a File Open dialog to get the template but you can hard-code it for your tests). Once the form region (as its own form since it is a replacement form region) is open, you can tab to all of the controls except the InfoPath control. You can click (with a mouse) into a field in the InfoPath control, but if you press tab, you will leave the control and go to the next Outlook field.

I believe you should be able to tab into the InfoPath control and then remain there until you click out of it (in other words, the InfoPath control should process all keys while it has focus).

Let me know if you need more information.
