Disable Outlook Anywhere?
Posted on 2009-12-29
I have Outlook Anywhere enabled/configured on my CAS server and everything is working as expected. However, I have a high level support group who would like for Outlook Anywhere to be disabled on their client's desktop machines (i.e. computers that don't ever leave the office). They are convinced that OL Anywhere is causing performance problems, and rather than burn cycle proving them wrong, I'd like to just disable this setting on those specific machines.
The problem is that it's not as simple as just unchecking the box to use OL Anywhere in the email account settings as they return for various reasons suck as a new OL profile is created or when network connection changes occure, etc. - basically when OL uses the Autodiscover service then the settings are pulled back down by Outlook.
Is there a registry key or something that can be set on a client basis that will disable this for good?
