Outlook--Changing the Entry Type List on a Journal Form

Can I change the Entry Type list on the journal form?

In most cases, you can't change the built-in drop-down lists on Outlook forms. The Entry Type list on the journal form is one exception. The list derives its values from the Windows registry rather than from hard-coded entries in Outlook. The Microsoft article "OL97: How to Create New Entry Type in the Journal" (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q180/1/39.asp) explains how to add a new journal type to the registry. The technique works for all versions of Outlook, even though the article is for Outlook 97.
