How To: Minimize Outlook 2002 to System Tray
Use the instructions here to create a new registry key. Note you must have SP1 in order for this feature to work. This will cause all images received in future Outlook emails to become attachments (even embeded ones).
To turn off this feature, just go back to the same registry key you just created HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Options\Mail and change the key value from 1 to 0.
To simplify toggling back and forth, export the newly created branch from regeit, and named it OutlookReadAsPlainTextOn.reg. Then edit that file changing the 1 to a 0 as mentinoned above and saved that file as OutlookReadAsPlainTextOff.reg. Toggle at will by double clicking the appropriate .reg file and accepting the merge or change.
