Is there a way to check the Allow Script in Public Folders setting using Group Policy or a script?
This is a setting all out users will need so it would be nice to manage this centrally.
Thanks.

Hi, deflint.

There is a policy template that controls this for 2007 so I assume there is also a setting for Outlook 2010 (I haven't looked at the 2010 templates to see).  The 2007 setting is in the OPA Settings section and is listed as "Do not allow Outlook object model scripts to run for public folders".

After looking I did find an Outlook 2010 Security Setting to allow scripts in one-off Outlook Forms.I enabled this setting and followed the corresponding note:
 Important: This policy setting only applies if the ''Outlook Security Mode'' policy setting under ''Microsoft Outlook 2010\Security\Security Form Settings'' is configured to ''Use Outlook Security Group Policy.''
Logged Out and back in.

The checkbo to Allow Script in Public Folders remained unchecked.
VB Scripts do not run on the custom form.
When I manually check this box, they do.

That's not the right policy.  Scripts in one-off forms has nothing to do with public folders.

Yes.  Use the policy I indicated instead of the one for one-off forms.

Yes I looked for this and there is no OPA Settings section in the ADM for Outlook 2010.
I basically started by looking through the ADM options for Outlook 2010. I didn't see what I was  looking for so posted the question.

Ahhh.  Now I understand.  I haven't looked at the policies for Outlook 2010.  I'll download a copy and see what I can find.

I downloaded the Excel file that lists all the settings.  The setting I gave above is on the page titled "OPAX and OPAL Settings".  The fastest way to find it is to use find and search for "public folder".
