Outlook: Minimizing Outlook to the System Tray

Can I force Outlook to minimize to the system tray?

To send the Outlook 2002 icon to the Windows system tray (and not to the taskbar) when you minimize the application, add a DWORD entry named MinToTray to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Preferences registry subkey and give the entry a value of 1.
