Digital ID in Outlook 2007

Is there a way to apply a certificate for a Digital ID in Outlook 2007 from the backend (perhaps through GPO or something in AD)?  We have many users that receive encrypted emails and it is an administrative nightmare to physically go to each and install the cert.  I have looked all over the GPO admin template for Outlook 2007 and I don't see a setting for the digital ID anywhere.

    logon to the CA web service and for each user request  and install a cert.  They shoud be able to use this cert to sign email.  If the emails com from outside the organization then you have to install each cert manually.

    I got the impression from your description you are talking about encrypted emails from outside sources.  If that is the case, I stand by my original statement.
