Outlook 2003 registry settings for Reading Pane and Arrange By

I'm trying to figure out which registry settings need to be modified so I can configure Outlook 2003 for all of our users.  I would like to set the Reading pane to bottom and disable Outlook to "show in groups".  I found this article: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Email_Groupware/Exchange_Server/Q_21177561.html?query=outlook+2003+reading+pane+registry&clearTAFilter=true

but it did not mention which value to add/modify and when I changed the setting myself in Outlook I did not see anything modified within this key.  

I also found this MS article:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HA011402851033.aspx

which says that these settings cannot be modified by the registry or other office tools, but I find that very hard to believe.  Has anyone else configured these through the registry?

Hi resourcepc,

Hard as it is to believe I'm afraid it's true.  Those settings are stored on a per folder basis in the message store (i.e. online mailbox or PST file), not the registry.  They are components of the current view.

Cheers!
