I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The easiest way I've found to do this is to add sites to specific zones using the Site to Zone Assignment Lists.

Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Internet Control Panel -> Security Page - Site to Zone Assignment List.

Value Name should be the URL of the site in question.  Value should be a value from 0 to 3.  The ones you will be interested in are

1 = Intranet Site
2 = Trusted Sites

NOTE that setting this will prevent the user from adding any more sites into the zones that you specify here.

Thanks for the points - for future reference, to apply policies immediately use GPUPDATE on the workstations.  Some settings may require you to use GPUPDATE /FORCE

Happy GPOing.
