Restrict Cache Mode for Particular Exchange 2013

We have kind of strange requirement, we have 3 Exchange Server and are in 3 different forests.

All users computers are joined to one single domain say ABC.local where all users gets authenticated.

Now we want to restrict cache mode configuring of Outlook for the Exchange which is installed in ABC.local domain.

If we try to restrict it by Group Policy then other 2 forest exchange users also will not be able to configure cached mode. So not sure how to achieve this.

But again in ABC.local also we need to have some exception where higher management should be excluded from this policy(they should be allowed to configure cached mode).

Can anyone one help me to achieve this scenario.

You will have to apply group policy only on required users, if you will enable it to whole domain then it will be applied to all users.

So segregate users in OUs or you can use security groups to segregate users. For higher management create a security group and add in GPO delegation to not to apply this group policy

What my understanding is if user A login to PC and if i apply the GPO, it will be effected on the Outlook where user has logged in. Which means the same user A will not be able to configure domain in cached mode and it is very much possible. But the problem here is the same user need to configure other domain accounts in cache mode as well which is from different exchange servers and We dont want to restrict user A from configuring cache mode for other domian (xyz and

Most of the user here need to configure multiple account in Outlook which is in 3 different Exchange servers of different forest. And we want to restrict only 1 Exchange account from cache mode.

This is happening as designed. Use Office customization tool and create PRF file to deploy it but i am afraid how it will work for multiple users.
