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?

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.

Well, I need it for Outlook.  Do you have a registry setting for that too?

Yeah, essentially Outlook is built off of Word.
