I am looking to deploy a Group Policy that forces users to use the font size and color that I define.  I am using Server 2008R2 and have the Outlook Administrative template already added but cannot find out to do this.  Please help!

I have seen those two articles already and I do not think they helped me out, or I just may be confused.  How do I get the mail settings registry from my computer, into the GPO to the server?

you can export just that registry key out and then set that to install within your gpo.  basically it would run when they log in based on the gpo they belong to.  I can take screen shots for you if you need.  Or its on google too, just let me know.

I did just that.  I exported my settings from my local computer and imported them to the server where the GPO is.  I applied the GPO and ran the gpupdate /force command from the server, and other computers.  It doesn't work still.  Perhaps if you were to send screen shots I may have missed a step.

Actually, hang tight with me.  I think it is now working.  I had to log the users off and back on for it to apply.  gpupdate /force did not update it.  I will keep this open and on Monday close it once I can verify with more users it applied.  Thanks a bunch.
