GPO Proxy Settings IE7 Windows 2003

Running Windows 2003 R2 and XP SP3.

I am trying to setup IE7 so that it automatically picks up proxy settings from a new GPO I have created. See the attached picture for the GPO settings.

I have used gpresult and gpupdate /force (plus a reboot) in commandline and rsop.exe. All these tools are tell me that the test user inside the OU I have created the GPO inside should have all the settings as I specified.

The defualt domain group policy has no proxy settings or anything else I can tell that might cause problems with a GPO further down the tree.

Problems:
Inside the test OU, logged on with the test user, the proxy address is found but the exceptions are not.
Outside of the test OU I can't get the exceptions to remain inside the proxy settings in IE7 (Internet Options/connections/LAN settings)

500 Points for answer as I am completely beat.

i think you'll find it's the very first setting you've configured. Automatically detect configuration settings uses the WPAD settings to configure IE.
You need to specify the Proxy manually and have that setting disabled.
