Hello and Happy Holidays to all the experts! I would like to try and get an answer to something that i'm exploring.

1. I have a small test network.
2. The users on that test network use Microsoft Outlook 2007 to communicate.
3. The exchange server is Exchange 2010.
3. For testing purposes, we would like to explore finding out if there is a way to disable/hide all file attachment functionality in Outlook 2007 including all attachment icons. This will prevent users from any need to attach any file to an outgoing email.

Is this possible? If so, is there a group policy setting that can be set and applied to all test users using Microsoft Office 2007 on the network or does this apply to Microsoft Exchange 2010?

I will continue to search the internet while I wait for an expert response. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

You can do that by create a transport rule... to prevent attachment from being sent to out side.

I'm assuming transport rules are done in Exchange 2010?

I read up on Transport rules for Exchange 2010 and it's a nice to know that it allows you to block many file types from being attached and emailed. I'll keep that information in my back pocket for now.

But what I really wanted to know is if it was possible to hide/disable the function of attachments all together in microsoft office 2007 and only allow users to send email content. and if so can it be controlled by Group Policy? You think there is a outlook registry setting or group policy setting?

And when I say emailed above I mean within a standalone network that's not connected to the internet.
