Hi,

I'm looking for help on creating a group policy to implement a corporate email standard.

The infrastructure is active directory 2003 with outlook 2003.

What is required is to force and restrict the stationary used within email to standard colour (black) and standard font (Arial 10pt) and a blank white background when composing. There is also a signature standard which we would like to use.

Most settings can be set by adding the MS Office ADM templates to your group policy server. The most things you can set under tools-options can also be set via policies.

Can you advise how to implement this adm change:

CATEGORY Signature
POLICY Disable signatures for new messages
KEYNAME Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\MailSettings
    PART Disable signatures for new messages CHECKBOX
                VALUENAME NewSignature
                VALUEON 
    END PART
    END POLICY
POLICY Disable signatures for replies and forwards
KEYNAME Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\MailSettings
    PART Disable signatures for replies and forwards CHECKBOX
                VALUENAME ReplySignature
                VALUEON 
    END PART
    END POLICY
POLICY Signature for new messages
KEYNAME Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\MailSettings
    PART Signature for new messages EDITTEXT
                VALUENAME NewSignature
               
    END PART
    END POLICY
POLICY Signature for replies and forwards
KEYNAME Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\MailSettings
    PART Signature for replies and forwards EDITTEXT
                VALUENAME ReplySignature     END PART
    END POLICY
END CATEGORY
END CATEGORY

 as when i have tried to do it i keep getting an error advising:

Administrative Templates

The following error occured in c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\adm\outlk11.adm on line 1218: Error 51 Unexpected keyword

Found: Category
Expected Keyname, Valuename, Default, Required, Maxlen, Oemconvert, soft, end, expandabletext, clientext

The file can not be loaded.

I have already double checked this with colleagues to ensure we are inputting the details correctly and everything is there as above. Any guidence on this would be much appreciated.
