Outlook 2007 - Terminal Server - Trust Center - Settings Disabled

MDWinter asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I have a Windows 2008 Terminal Server. It is NOT in an AD Domain.

I have Outlook 2007 installed for around 80 users.

I want to disable the annoying security prompt when accessing Outlook programatically.

When I log in as the administrator, I load Outlook and go to the Trust Center and change the relevant setting.

When the non-admin users run Outlook, that setting is greyed out, so cannot be changed.

How do I change this setting for the non-admin users? In a non-AD environment how do I manage everyone's outlook settings?

You can add the following registry DWORD to get around it.
However, you will need to logon the Terminal Server As Admin

Personally I would not do this, as it can have some major repercussions
