The feature isn't available in Outlook 2000. It was new to Outlook 2002.

Hmm..  I didnot know it existed in OL 2002. I got outlook 2002 and I actually used the registry key above to accomplish that. I know it is inbuilt in outlook 2003.

For outlook 2000, you need to try that registry tweak and see if it would help
