Outlook 07 in tray?

Simple thing... placing MS outlook in sys tray instead of residing on my taskbar. Previously in XP i had an app and knew of a reg "tweak" to have it minimize to sys tray. Any help for this in win7? Would rather go the way of reg rather than having another app running.

When you run Outlook 07, it will have an accompanied system tray icon displayed. If you right click on this icon, you can put a check mark on "Hide When Minimized". That should keep Outlook in the system tray when not in use. Is this what you're looking for?
