How to configure Editor Options in outlook 2007 using group policy

I have a client that runs into formatting problems when users paste content into an email. The emails are supposed to have a certain look, but sometimes the new content that is pasted in will mess up the formatting.

I would like to use the outlook editor options to make "Match destination formatting" the default choice when users are pasting new content into the update. I have checked the Outlook 2007 administrative template, and the office customization tool and I have been unable to find those options for configuration.

Does anyone know how I could manage these settings in a centralized way? also if anyone knows how to make this setting the default in outlook 2003 that would be greatly appreciated.

The option of formatting is avaible in Office Word GPO.

Mark formatting inconsistencies\Color for marking inconsistencies

Microsoft Office Word <version>\Word Options\Advanced\Smart Cut and Paste

Software\Policies\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Proofing Tools

For more info refer this:

Hope this helps,

That wasnt exactly what I was looking for but it should alert the users to the fact that the formatting is incorrect.

I followed the GP settings User Configuration > Admin Templates > Office 2007 > Advanced > Smart Cut and Paste. but I dont see "Mark Formatting inconsistencies"
