Office Domain Policy ADM & ADMX files, Outlook Policy
Posted on 2013-01-23
Thanks for all your help in advance.
I am working in a windows server 2008R2 environment with Ms office 2003 and 2007 on windows XP clients.
I have inherited the domain, group policy is configured and particurlarly Outlook policy in 2003 and 2007 which I need to reverse. Primarily outlook 2003 and 2007 clients have the outlook anywhere settings enforced, for example the "connect to microsoft exchange using HTTP" is ticked and cant be unticked, and the exchange proxy settings are filled in and cant be changed.
I would like some help and clarification with this. I have searched for settings using GP management on the primary domain controller. And cant find this enforced policy.
Firstly I assume these settings must be coming from group policy?
Secondly I assume that this configuration must be changed using the office toolkit, with the ADM and ADMX files?
thirdly, I assume that because all my clients are XP (for the moment) that I dont need to use the ADMX files and therefore cannot use the central configuration to resolve this?
so... assuming everything above is correct, is it correct that I must install the ADM files for outlook 2007 and seperately for outlook 2003 within the group policy management editor?
AND... that this will not show me the settings? that I will need to enforce new settings over the top?
I browsed through the ADM files for Outlook 2007 and could not find the outlook anywhere settings... can someone tell me the path I'm looking for?
How shouldi overwrite the settings? or is there anyway to reset ALL outlook policy to default?
Thanks again for any help. I have done very little with group policy and never used the office toolkit so am looking for reassurance before i start playing with things!
