Hi Experts,
I am setting up a group policy for leavers of our company - basically to lock everything down.  I would like to prevent these users from setting up a (disparaging) out of office assistant alert the day they leave.  I have downloaded the group policy resource kits for both office 2003 and 2007 and applied these to the group policy I am creating.  However, I cannot find any reference to restricting out of office.  Does the 'custom' element of the office group policy allow this to be set up?  If so, can someone walk me through the steps to accomplish this?  If not, is there another method to do this?
Thanks.
Keith

The only way I have found is to go into each mailbox and set it individually. Otherwise there may be a 3rd party app for this or you could write one.

Keith,

There is no option in the Office Group policy to do this.
I have also been searching for this option and there is a 3th party software I have found sofar is http://www.tools4ever.com/products/out-of-office-manager/

I did not had the time to check it out but maybe this can help you.

Good luck,
Chris
