Why Work with the Registry?

You might wonder why a book about Outlook contains information about the Windows registry, also known as the registration database. The reason is that Outlook saves a lot of information in the registry. For example, the categories in your personal Master Category List are saved in the registry, as described in Chapter 20, "Using Categories and Entry Types." Although you don't need to be concerned with the registry while you use Outlook in your daily work, some customizing tasks can be performed only by working with the registry. If you want to copy a personal Master Category List from one computer to another, you must copy information from one computer's registry to the other computer's registry.

Quite often, when you consult articles about Outlook in the Microsoft Knowledge Base, or on the TechNet CD-ROM, you'll come across techniques that require you to make changes within the Windows registry.
