This article describes where Microsoft Outlook Journal settings are stored in the Windows Registry.
In Outlook, you can set the Journal to automatically record items. To set these options follow these steps:
For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up the registry before you edit it. If you are running Windows NT, you should also update your Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
On the Journal Options page you have options to automatically record items and also record files from other Microsoft Office 2000 programs. The settings are stored in the Windows Registry in several registry keys. These keys are located in the Registry under:
Each key pertains to a specific Journal setting. For example, the settings for automatically recording Meeting responses is located in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Outlook\Journaling\ Meeting Response
The settings for recording files from Microsoft Word are located in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Outlook\Journaling\ Microsoft Word
In each key there is a "Name" value called "Enabled" with a "Data" value of either "0x00000001(1)" for on or "0x00000000(0) for off. If this key Name is missing, the setting is off. For example, if the Enabled Data value is set to 0x00000001 then Microsoft Word files are automatically added to the Journal.
Each key also contains a "Name" value called "AutoJournaled" which determines if the item shows up in the Journal Options as a user selectable setting. Setting the AutoJournaled Data value to 0x00000000(0) removes the Word from the Journal options.
The following examples demonstrate how to turn on the Word setting, and how to remove Word as an option in the Journal.
