Remove permission tab in Outlook

Can I restrict/remove the Permission tab in Outlook? I would like to prevent users from granting access to their email folders to other users. I did not find anything in the GPO templates.

I have never seen such way for that.
GPO templates may not have this kind of policy.

@erickm27,

I am not sure what version of Outlook you are running; however, please see the following link for Outlook 2007:

The above link should get you pointed in the right direction.

I hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Can you add this reg key without having the hotfix applied? I need to add this configuration to 1500+ computers. (Outlook 2007) We usually use GPO's to customize the user's environment.

@erickm27,

Typically, hotfixes are released by Microsoft to resolve issues that they have not yet released a patch for. Beings that the hotfix reference is from May 2008, I am assuming that the changes contained within have already been made a part of a software patch.

I would recommend trying the fix on a user or two and see if this is the case--this assuming that you keep your environment current on Microsoft Patches.

Once you have confirmed that the fix referenced in the article will work, you can likely utilize some aspect of Microsoft's management tools to deploy to your users--whether that be via script, GPO, etc.

Hope this helps!
