I'm working on removing PST files from the environment. I would like to remove access to these files to certain users on a certain date. The environment I'm in uses Outlook 2003& 2010 in limited deployments.
I've read and tested implementing
this does not remove access to PST files that are already used by an outlook user. It restricts opening existing PST files and creating new ones.
limits creating adding, and also limits adding emails to existing PST files. Does not remove access to existing PST files.
I know that will need to implement these settings above in or environment, but how do I remove access to the PSTs that are already mapped in outlook?
I've seen posts that reference this reg key here to try and search and destroy PST file mappings but I do not see any in my reg hives
\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\Default
Current options I have now are:
1. remove existing outlook profile and create new one? (not sure how to do that one large scale, and brutal for users)
2. Search for and rename PST files to remove mapping in outlook. (brute force)
What am I really looking for is an elegant solution to remove the existing maps of PST files in outlook.
