Programmatic Access Security in Outlook 2007 not doing what it's told

Hi

We have started using a new DB package which integrates with Outlook. However we get the dreaded popups saying that a 3rd party tool is trying to access our outlook, etc etc.

So, I want to try to set the Outlook security settings to "Never warn me about suspicious activity". However, using the office 2007 administrative templates we are getting nowhere. If we set the GPO to what we want, the registry key referred to in the ADM file gets created in the current user hive but seems to have no effect on Outlooks settings.

To make matters worse Outlook has disabled the end users ability to change the settings in Programmatic Access Security. Administrators can change it but end users cant, and I don't see any settings in the GPOs which affect this.

Outlook 2007 is running on Server 2003 (a terminal services box) and that doesn't support telling Outlook about the AV state, hence why it's not automatically allowing the 3rd party app access to Outlook.

Any idea a) how we can allow users to turn off the programmatic access security control individually and/or b) why Outlook isn't paying any attention to the GPO settings?

Just want to double-check if the below one is the registry key?
HKCU\SW\Policies\Microsoft\Security\CheckAdminSettings

want to revisit the steps as per the below link

Customizing the Outlook Security Features Administrative Package
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/office-xp-resource-kit/customizing-the-outlook-security-features-administrative-package-HA001136447.aspx

>> IMO, the above URL and the GPO should work without any hassles

>>is it failing on all the client machines or only few client machines?

Olly - did this resolve your issues?  We have applied the GPO and even set the registry key but we still get the popup.
