Are you using the Office 2007 Admin Templates in GP?


If you are using it and can't find it, then there isn't anything out of the box to disable it.
Most of the settings in Outlook are client side and cannot be managed centrally.

This is possible
If you want to do this only on one client machine that has Outlook 2007 then:
Go to the registry
String: tcid1
Value: 2511

To do this via GP:
Install the Office 2007 Administrative Template files V2.0 wherever you are going to
manage Group Policy.

-Open up the Group Policy Management console.
-Browse to whichever policy you want to modify, and click edit.
-Right click on User Configuration\Administrative Templates, and choose to Add a
new template.
-Browse to the directory where you extracted the admin templates, and add
-Expand User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Classic Administrative
Templates (ADM)\Microsoft Office Outlook 2007\Disabled Items in User
-Open the Disable command bar buttons and menu items" policy.
-Click Enabled, and then Show
-Add the ID: 2511
