Disable auto archive on all outlook clients

Hi,

Our company uses two 2003 server domain controllers and all client machines run Outlook 2000.

For some reason on clean installs of Office 2000, the setting for auto-archive seems to be set to archive to the computer locally as default.

Does anyone know of a way to set up a GPO that swtiches this off and prevents users from changing their auto archive settings?

I would like to prevent any changes being made to any of the current archive settings, but still prevent users from creating their own.

Is this possible?  Any help would be much appreciated as I need to back up all users mail which should be held on the exchange server and not locally to each computer.

We turned this off by using the Office Resource kit and creating an installation package for Outlook/Office, however, using the Office Resource kit, you could turn this setting office using the outlk.adm file to turn off this setting.  See:  http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ork2003/HA011402401033.aspx
