How can I determine the state of this Outlook option:

Tools / Options... / Mail Format / Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail
messages

? Can I detect this from my installation program somehow? How about from
my add-in?

Thanks,
Mark

You can read the setting from the registry, e.g. Outlook 03:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Options\Mail\EditorPreference

no Word: '0x00010000'
use Word: '0x00010001'

Perfect, thanks Michael. That raises another question. How do I find out
the version of Outlook they're using, so I know in which registry path to
look? I believe this option was eliminated in Outlook 2007, so I'd need to
know whether to search in 11.0/10.0/9.0 in my case. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mark

You can read the Application.Version property. The first digits up to the
first dot are the important ones.

Thanks. I do know how to determine the version from within the context of
my add-in, but how about from my setup program, which would be reading these
registry values? Is there some other registry setting that shows the
installed version of Outlook? How would I determine the version when
Outlook is not running?

Thanks,
Mark
