As you probably know, the default policies will cause any changes you make (even as administrator) to revert back to to HIGH. I've disabled/enables mutiple policies, but no luck in getting this one to allow changes.

For example, I cannot recieve HTML emails unless I right click each and every one to allow it.

Also, If I move my Internet Security Levels to Medium-Low, some policy changes it right back to Medium.
