On the Journal Options page you have options to automatically record itemsand also record files from other Microsoft Office 2000 programs. Thesettings are stored in the Windows Registry in several registry keys.These keys are located in the Registry under:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Outlook\Journaling\


Each key pertains to a specific Journal setting. For example, the settingsfor 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" valueof either "0x00000001(1)" for on or "0x00000000(0) for off. If this keyName is missing, the setting is off. For example, if the Enabled Datavalue is set to 0x00000001 then Microsoft Word files are automaticallyadded to the Journal.

Each key also contains a "Name" value called "AutoJournaled" whichdetermines if the item shows up in the Journal Options as a userselectable setting. Setting the AutoJournaled Data value to 0x00000000(0)removes the Word from the Journal options.
