Communicator 2007 Client Lockdown Question

Hi,

Does anyone know how to remove or disable the 'Change Conversation Subject' option in the Communicator 2007 client? I've tried searching the custom adm that Microsoft supply, but I don't see anything there (I even opened the file up in notepad, just to see if there some explanation inthe description I was missing).

I need to get this removed for a client. Don't mind it its using a custom adm that tattoos the registry.

Alternatively, is this likely to be something that could be removed by repackging the client with a packaging tool?

There is no policy to hide or disable "Change Conversation Subject".

Hi

Thanks for your response.

Is there no way of disabling this at all, in that case? It's a menu on the app, surely there's some way of disabling it?

The reason I need to get it disabled is because the client using this is an education service based client, so there's lots of extra considerations over and above what would normally be encountered in a typical corporate environment (bullying messages via the conversation topic to name but one, abuse of teachers to name another). Seems a bit excessive I know, but legal requirements are legal requirements...

Thanks a lot

If you have a Microsoft Technical Account Manager you could speak to them about filing a design change request.
You might consider implementing OCS Archiving Server and putting a disclaimer in the conversation window as a warning that all conversations are archived.

Have already got Quest Policy Authority filtering the conversations for profanity. Would SQL logging also log the conversation topic?

The OCS SQL Database does not log the converstation topic.  If you install the OCS Archiving server role which requires a separate SQL database/instance then it will archiving the IM converstations.
