Group Policy - ADM files

Hi everyone!

I will be upgrading our site from NT4 to 2003 in the new year and I want to create a group policy object which includes (amongst other things) Oulook configurations.    Is there an outlook .adm f ile that I can add to GPO that will give me a template in which to configure users outlook settings through policy?

Thanks
Catriona

Hello again

Ive just had a read of this article and it doesnt quite answer what I want....I want to create a group policy at the server level (2003) and issue it to all users in my domain.  GPMC comes with its default .ADM files but not with Outlook - do I need to install a resource kit to get this additional outlook ADM file?  

Cheers

Catriona,

First thing you need is the Office Resource Kit. There is a version for each version of Office:

Office 2000 Resouce Kit - http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/2000/appndx/toolbox.htm#readme
(About 2/3rds down the page - Office Resource Kit core tool set)

Office XP Resource Kit - http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/xp/appndx/appc00.htm
(About half way down the page)

Office 2003 Resouce Kit - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=4bb7cb10-a6e5-4334-8925-3bcf308cfbaf&DisplayLang=en

Once installed you can find the administrative templates in %systemroot%\inf.

Using the Add / Remove Templates option when editing a policy will allow you to import one of them in. Saving the policy will load a version of the adm onto the server as part of the policy itself.

Hope that all makes sense.

Yes, install the Resource Kit for the correct version of Office you have - I just read the article and it isn't very clear on this.

The procedure for adding the templates is the same.
