Outlook 2003 Delegates Tab (removal)

Posted on 2009-02-18

I would like to automate the process of removing the "Delegates" tab from our Outlook 2003 clients.  I do know how to manually do this but I can't seem to find a automated (script) method.

The major file for this to happen is the dlgsetp.ecf (rename or delete it) but I still have to manually go in to my outlook client, then Tools, Options, Others tab, Advanced Options button, Add-In Manager button, and then un-check Delegate Access.  I can't find a reg key for the Add-In manger check box for Delegate Access.

This is not a feasible method.    Can anyone help???

Hi soccsupport,
unfortunately I can only tell you which reg key is responsible for this setting in Outlook 2007 (but I think the key "Settings" should also exist in Outlook 2003 under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook" and behave in the same way).
Attached you can see the key difference when the Add-In is turned on and off.

Please replace the "12.0" mentioned in the key attached with "10.0" for outlook 2003.

Unfortunately, this binary key is responsible for quite a lot of settings in Outlook as it seems. But as I found out, the entry "06" (which turns the delegate tab on) or "04" (which turns it off) on the 13th position of the key is responsible for it.

I hope this is of some help to you.

Best regards,
//Option turned off (in Outlook 2007)
//Option turned on (in Outlook 2007)
