How to disable or remove certain Outlook 2003 or 2000 components

Hello,

We run a very "locked down" profiled environment and want to restrict access from Outlook Contacts and possibly Journal for a select group of sales reps.

Is this possible?  If so, how?

We are currently running Exchange 2000.  Clients are either W2k or XP.

Thank you,

Mark

Yes Vahik, that is correct.  We do not want them to have the ability to use these items.

Ouch, you are correct.  I don't like it :)   I was really hopeing to find something like a reg hack that would allow disabling contacts.

Unfortunately u cant do much to an owner of a mailbox(owners have full mailbos rights).
u could restrict their certain rights through group policy(i am sure u have office11 adm
downloaded)as far as where they will save their pst files or where to save copy of their sent emails.....but as of now u cant restrict access to any MAPI client to their  default folder in outlook if they have full mailbox rights....

Thank you Vahik.  I really appreciated your time and efforts.  

I hope that sometime in the future that Microsoft or a third party will make Outlook more granular as far as rights and permissions are concerned.
