Set Arial as Standard Font in Outlook 2003 and all Office Products on Windows XP Clients within Active Directory

We have AD with 140 Windows Clients with OFfice 2003.
New Company policy demands that all clients use Arial as Standart Font in Outlook 2003 and other Office 2003 Products.

Is there any easy way to configure that ?

thx in advance.

There are a number of Microsoft Outlook options that you can enforce using Active Directory Group Policy. To set this up, first download the Office Resource Kit. Locate the ADM files in the Resource Kit folder and copy them into %windir%\inf. The template that will be of the most interest to you is Outlk11.adm.

Once you've done this, create a Group Policy Object (GPO). Call it Outlook Configuration, or anything with a convenient name. Edit your GPO and select the Administrative Templates under User Configuration. Right-click Administrative Templates, select the Add/Remove Templates option, and then browse to the Outlok11.adm file. After you've done this, you will have a new node under User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with lots of goodies that you can configure and enforce for your users, including specification of stationary and fonts.
I hope this help!
