We are trying to add local intranet sites through Group Policy.  When we set it up though it does not allow currect https:// sites to remain in the users' trusted sites and it will not allow the user to add any other sites to the https:// location.

What we would like to do is add local intranet sites to trusted sites for all of the employees machines through Group Policy while still allowing them to add their own sites as well.

Any ideas?

There are 2 ways that you can add trusted sites through Group Policy.  You can import the settings from your computer under User Configuration\Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\Security\Security Zones and Content Ratings.
The other way to import the Sites is to go into Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Control Panel\Security Page  and enter them in the policy "Site to Zone Assignment List".

I cannot recall which one, but one of these methods does not overwrite the existing sites.  Do you know which one you are using?

We are using the Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Control Panel\Security Page  and enter them in the policy "Site to Zone Assignment List".  However, when we add the sites there and give them a rating of 2 it removes any sites that the user had added and does not allow any other sites to be added.  I will try the first option that you suggested and see if that resolves the issue.  I'll let you know.

I checked our policy settings and we are using the first method and our users are able to add sites.  Just make sure that you remove the old settings in the Administrative Template ;).

That worked like a charm.  I can now add anything that I need to in all of the security settings and it will propigate down to the users machine while maintaining what they currently have set in their trusted site.  Thank you for the excellent solution.
