Default 'Mark items as read when viewed in the Reading Pane' programatical


Outlook version 2007
Using VSTO and Redemption

I need to change the following settings at runtime

Mark items as read when viewed in the Reading Pane
Wait [ ] seconds before marking the item as read.
Mark item as read when selection changes.

All the above settings are on a form found he

Tools -- Options -- Other -- Reading Pane

The registry settings are stored in

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\O utlook\Preferences]

I know how to change the registry settings but I don't know to re-load these
settings again without closing outlook and re-openning it again (which I
don't want to do).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been stuck on this for a time.
