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

It is not possible to force Outlook to reread the registry, nor is there any
other way to do what you're proposing unless you want to try a kludgy
SendKeys operation.

In the future, please post Outlook code questions in the forum at

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.
