Controlling Outlook Options' "Update tracking information, and then delete response that don’t contain comments"

I recently had to determine how to disable the Update tracking information, and then delete response that don’t contain comments option in the File > Options > Mail > Tracking settings via either GPO or registry but wasn’t able to find any information available:

After going through the Outlook settings provided by the ADM file and not finding anything, I managed to track down the registry so I thought it would be good to write this quick blog post for others.

The registry key that controls this configuration is located in:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\General

Name: AutoDelRcpts
Type: REG_DWORD
Data: 1 (enabled) and 0 (disabled)

clip_image002[5]

Hope this helps anyone who may be looking for this information.
