GPO for safe senders list

I would like to use gpo to append a 'safe sneders list' to clients outlook 2007 safe sender list. Setting up the gpo is pretty easy but also, unfortunetaly, registry changes also have to be made on the client pc's - I do not want to enforce registry settings through gpo since we have many clients and dont want to mess with registry.
Kinda defeats the purpose in a sense of using a gpo to append the safe senders list but then you need a gpo to enforce registry changes to do it......

We use Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2007 - W2K8

Is outlook also deployed by GPO, as you can customise the install with the Office Customization Tool http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/cc179056.aspx

no, outlook is installed locally. I want to enforce a gpo of a safe senders list without editing the clients registry.
any suggestions?

I set this up for a domain with about 3000 workstations.    I documented it for both Outlok 2003 and 2007   I will attach the one for 2003


You will need the Office 2007 Admin template for the GPO:

Thanks , I'l l check out those links and attached doc.

Also, the strange thing is that the email address users are receiving that are being sent into the junk mail folder is an email that comes from within our domain!
You'd figure that if the email is in the GAL then it would be recognized as safe, but apparently not.

Well check to make sure that the Outlook user didn't put their domain or certain emails on the junk list.
