I am attempting to create a policy that adds a rule to inside Outlook 2k7 to move all mail with the words SUSPECT: in the subject to the Junk E-mail folder.

I downloaded the Outlook 2k7 ADMX from Microsoft and put it in my workstations c:\windows\policydefinitions\ folder and I see this error when I attempt to edit a policy.

Maybe I have the procedure wrong.

The admx belongs at the DC, you don't put it on the clients.

Any specific DC?  Does it have to operate at a certain level?  Only 2k8 DC's?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It can be 2000/2003/2008. (2000 DCs cannot manage admx without the help of the RSAT tool).

oops, you said admx. You could use the ADMs that way. See the links at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=92d8519a-e143-4aee-8f7a-e4bbaeba13e7&displaylang=en

For information about using the ADM files, see the 2007 Office System Administrative Template files, and Using Group Policy Management Console and Group Policy Object Editor sections of the Enforce settings by using Group Policy in the 2007 Office system article on the Microsoft TechNet Web site. For information about using ADMX files for Windows Vista, see Managing Group Policy ADMX Files Step-by-Step Guide on the Microsoft TechNet Web site. For information about using the OCT, see Office Customization Tool in the 2007 Office system on the Microsoft TechNet Web site.

Obviously I'm not following you.  I downloaded specific templates.  If I don't put the ADMX files on my DC how will it know where they are or which ones to add?
