Preventing Outlook Custom Forms

Following yesterday's post about the power of custom forms for end-users I thought I should also point out a tip for administrators who may wish to prevent custom form creation within their organisation.

To do this, go to the registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook and create a new DWORD value named NoOutlookFormsDesigner with a value of 1.

Health Warning:  Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system and spoil your day. Do not attempt this while drunk. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valuable data on the computer.
