Changing Access Makro Security Settings via GPO


I need to create a policy for 170 users of a SBS 2003 network in order to set Access makro security to a specific level at the first login.

I have read several threads on appliing *.adm templates.

I have downloaded the access11.adm with the ORK ... but unfortunately I did not find out how to apply any *.adm with the group policy manager.

Please give me a hint on how to create an appropriate GPO with the group policy manager to set the Access makro security

I am not good at GPO, but my guess is that you do the following (testing in a sub OU before doing is probably better):

Server Management - Advanced Management - Group Policy Management - ... MyBusiness - ... SBSComputers - Right-click -  Create and Link a GPO Here.

Select New GPO - Right-click -  Edit

Then follow

Open the Group Policy Editor and navigate to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates.

Right click on the Administrative Templates container and select Add/Remove Templates.

Click the Add button and you will be prompted for the template you wish to import.

Select the OUTLK11.ADM file from the folder where you extracted the various Microsoft Office administrative templates, and click Open, then Close.
