This should do it:

Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001
strComputer = "."      ' local computer

Set objRegistry = GetObject _
    ("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

strKeyPath = "Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Options\Mail"
strValueName = "EditorPreference"
intValue = 196609

errReturn = objRegistry.SetDWORDValue _
    (HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath, strValueName, intValue)
0
