If I created a custom form (including Script) in Outlook 2003, published it to the personal forms library, the only way I know to create a item out of this form is "File -> New -> Choose Form... -> Personal Forms Library -> Select my Form -> Ok".

Is there a faster way? For example, a link from the desktop or from the Outlook favorites folder?

No, unfortunately this works only with forms without script. Thanks anyway. – Zeemee Feb 4 '10 at 8:02

This VBA code will display the form. You can call it from a button.

Replace FormName with your form name.

Sub DisplayFormName()

    Dim MyFolder
    Dim myItem As MailItem

    ' create new outgoing message based on a form
    Set MyFolder = Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
    Set myItem = MyFolder.items.Add("IPM.Note.FormName")

End Sub

Macro security should be set to medium.
