Why would you want to go down to the registry level to disable the filter?  You can disable it by going to Tools -> Options -> Junk E-Mail Button -> Select the "No Automatic Filtering" radio button.  I've been trying to look up the registry entry just in case that's really what you need but this should do it for you without the risk of playing with the registry.

l need the registry change cause I need to change 180 laptop users who are computer illiterate, 45 mins sometime to explain which button to click on a screen, if I can post a reg file and just have them launch that, problem solved

Still haven't been able to find the reg key but this might work:

"To disable junk filtering In Exchange System Manager

Expand Servers > YOUR_SERVER > Protocols > SMTP and select the Properties for the Default SMTP Virtual Server.

On the General tab of the Default SMTP Virtual Server Properties click on Advanced, click on your SMTP server identity and click on Edit and uncheck to Apply Intelligent Message Filter. OK, OK, Apply. "

Server is already disabled, its not exchange which is the problem, problem is the outlook client which when connected to exchange server does not do the junk mail filter, unless RPC over HTTP and / or cached mode, which we are using for a number of users and thats where our problem is
