Where in the registry should custom settings for an add-ins configurable

values be kept?

office\12.0\outlook\addins\Myaddin

or

office\12.0\outlook\options\Myaddin

or

somewhere else?

thanks

You put them wherever you want. Neither of those paths is standard.

If you want the settings in the addin registration area that would be

\software\microsoft\office\outlook\addins\myaddin. However, depending on

your addin registration the addin might be registered in HKLM, and a user

running the addin might not have permissions to write to HKLM. You could use

HKCU for that at all times if you want.

I generally, if I use the registry at all for settings , would place things

under HKCU\Software\MyCompanyName\AddinName.
