Need Outlook VBA macro that turns off autocorrect option

Hi, I am searching for an Outlook VBA macro that turns off the Outlook Autocorrect option:  File, Options, Mail, Spelling and Autocorrect, Autocorrect Options, Replace Text As You Type checkbox.  Can someone out there help me?

What version of outlook and can it be a registry key instead?

Outlook 2010, and hmmm, yes, and then I could do a VBA macro that runs registry key every time Outlook is opened.

I would change the autocorrect settings to the way you want it and then export the following registry key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options]


Got it from here:
http://superuser.com/questions/335096/word-2010-registry-key-for-autocorrect-options

Someone also posted a bunch of tweak keys to the autocorrect functionality, if it's a certain piece of it that's driving you insane.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yeah, essentially Outlook is built off of Word.
