How customisable is Outlook anyway!?  I have been given a project of revoking all permissions that people have set within the client end of outlook. (for example Delegates or explicetly set permissions to things like inbox, contacts, etc) and also reset the "Default" permission to "None".
I know this must be stored somehow on the Mailbox with exchange, because if i look at the mailbox using an administrative account, i can see these permissions as well.
If anyone knows a way of doing this, or even if it is possible, please please please let me know!!!! it's doing my head in!.
Also, as a side note, does anyone know how to remove the ability for a user to be able to send BCC mail?
Again, any help would be greatful.

It would help to know which version of Outlook and which version of Exchange.  You can find plenty of help for both at www.slipstick.com

Outlook98 is rather old.  I looked at slipstick and can't find much to help you.

Are the permissions not kept on the exchange server? Unfortunately i cannot roll out anything other than outlook 98 for the moment.... licencing costs and all that ... I am looking at applying this to around about 3 thousand users.
Surely there is a way to reset permissions on every mailbox on an exchange 5.5 server that I simply cannot find.

That would be it.  On the left you can choose Exchange Server 5.5 and below that you can type in the phrase you are searching for.  I haven't been able to find anything.  maybe you will br more successful in finding something.

There is a MBInfo utility, I have no experience with it,
but seems that it may work, at least you can extract these permissions.
