Set a company wide default font on Outlook 2007 + 2010 using group policy
Posted on 2012-03-27
Hi, I need to roll out Arial 11 black as a default font to Outlook 2010 and 2007 users installs, I would like to be able to do this by Group Policy rather than a logon script.
I have seen how to create the key in a clean version of Outlook 2010, find it in the registry and export the binary key.
I need to know how to create a new (or amend) default domain policy to add the entry onto everyone’s machine registry, I am assuming that the exported key will sit in a shared network folder accessible to all.
The user base also does not have permissions to access the registry, when I have to edit or add anything from inside a user profile, I have to remove temporarily the group policy.
Could anyone walk me through a step by step approach to achieving this, as mentioned I don’t really want to add a logon script for all users as we already have a reasonable amount of these for differing departments.
Many thanks in advance for the possible solutions offered.
