Eliminating shift deletes through group policy

Hello:

I have a customer that utilizes Outlook 2003 that wishes to eliminate the ability of users to shift delete email items.  The users are set  up with roaming profiles and the .pst files for Outlook live in the users home directory on the file server.  Question: has anyone ever heard of this being done through group policy?

Try this reg key on the clients..

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Options
Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1

This means users will always be able to recover deleted items by clicking on the deleted items folder and choosing Tools => Recover Deleted Items.

From what I know this can be done using the .adm file from the Office Resource Kit.

I have not tried it ever but I found this on internet and from what they are sying this should work.
