When I access Offline File Option to disable it everything is greyed out.  I have full administrative rights to system and have disable Offline File use through group policy.  Server currently hosts Exchange Server 2003.  Any ideas on why I cannot disable this feature?

ok,, in 2003 you can diable offline files in 2 ways:
you can disallow it right on the share itself (ie per share)
OR
you can disallow it via group policy (ie per user/computer)

which are you trying to do?

I am trying to disable it on the server itself.  It will not allow a Remote Desktop Connection while offline files is active.

hold on,, that is the first time you mentioned ANYTHING about RDC.  are you having trouble with RDC?  if you are please post another question about RDS as this question is about offline files.

i know you are trying to disable it on the server, there is no other way, i will ask again:
