I would like to achieve two things if possible:-

1) How do you disable a Plug-in for Outlook 98/2000, is there an ini file or registry entry that controls this
2) Could 1) be done depending upon the user who logs in ?

This question relates to the Windows 2000 client environment

Is there any particular plugin you want to disable?

You could poke around in this portion of the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Extensions

Most of the plug in info is there. It might also be contained in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive in some situations but I'm not sure about that.

The other thing to watch out for now is COM-AddIns (applies only to OL2K), these are disabled/unloaded by doing an unregsvr on the COM (Active X) component.

Registry hive is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins
 is not resident within my registry

Does HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Extensions apply to Outlook ?
