We had been using Outlook 2003 we recently upgrade to 2010....  In 2003 we had a macro that would run to prevent users access (or at least easy) access to the options item in the tool bar.  I've attached the code was from EE - Thanks!

Was wondering if there is something the same for Outlook 2010 to prevent access to the ribbon bar "FILE" option.

Thank you.

Not sure about the actual button, but you can disable any ribbon element using GPO (this will also disable the corresponding entry under the File menu).

You can do this via GPO: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179143(v=office.14).aspx

Yes, group policy object. Or edit the local policy if non-domain joined.
