How to disable or remove certain Outlook 2003 or 2000 components


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,

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.
