Group Policy Management Editor - Vista - Outlook - ADMX

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?

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

What directory on the DC as %windir%\policydefinitions does not exist on my 2k3 DC.

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

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?
