MORE INFORMATION

WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

Outlook users can click Stationery Picker if HTML has been selected as the message format on the Mail Format tab of Outlook Options (located on the Tools menu). In the Stationery Picker dialog box, they have the option to select more stationery by clicking Get More Stationary. Some organizations may want to restrict the usage of Get More Stationary by removing the following Value data entries from the registry:

Outlook 98:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Outlook
Value name: "GetMoreStationeryURL"
Value data (SZ): "http://www.microsoft.com/re.."


Outlook 2000:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Outlook
Value name: "GetMoreStationeryURL"
Value data (SZ): "http://www.microsoft.com/re.."


If either Outlook 98 or Outlook 2000 does not have the above registry entries, you can force disabling of the Get More Stationary button by adding the above keys to the registry with an empty string Value data (SZ).
