On the File, Info, just below account information is a button "Add Account".  I want to disable this button.
I have found out that the button control id is 20100.
I have successfully disabled other buttons in Outlook by their button control id.
But this one will not disable.
Group Policy
Use DisabledCmdBarItemsList and the value of “20100”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\DisabledCmdBarItemsList
"TCID1"="20100"

Microsoft is aware of this in KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2288685
BUT I NEED TO DISABLE IT - is there any way around this that anyone can suggest

Hi, if you download the adm here, there's an excel file explaining every settings in the ADM and OPAL for each and every office program.

Try looking in Outlook->AccountSettings.
Just click download in the page and select the XLS

Hope this helps.
Bye! :-)

This problem occurs when you attempt to disable the following controls in the Info section of the backstage via group policy:
  Control                            Policy value
 Add Account                           20100
Account Settings                     6863
Delegate Access                      20103
Download Address Book        5658
Prepare for Offline Use          20300

Microsoft is aware of this issue with the Microsoft Outlook versions listed. There is no resolution at this time.
