Prohibit Outlook themes/wallpaper

Can someone tell me how to prohibit themes or stationary backgrounds for users of Outlook?  We have verbally prohibited this, but we always have those users who think if they don't send many emails, its ok to put their hideous "cloud" type backgrounds on all of their emails.  I want to shut this down, and shut it down hard and fast!

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Value name: NewStationery
Value type: REG_EXPAND_SZ
Value: leave blank

Then use Group Policy Objects to block these toolbar and menu commands in Outlook and Word. IDs are in ():

I also found reference to Outlook 2007:
HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\MailSettings - create new string value of NewStationery and leave the data blank
