GPO setting to enabled "Download Shared Folders"

Hello Team,
If someone has worked on this scenario, please assist with the resolution.

Background: Exchange cached mode is enabled for all users across Org (outlook 2010).

Requirement: We want to give an option to all users using GPO to select/deselect "Download Shared Folders" with cached mode enabled from GPO(no user should deselect the cached mode)

I use admin template for the following setting
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Outlook 2010 > Account Settings > Exchange > Cached Exchange Mode > Download shared non-mail folders: Disabled

If I set it enabled, it enabled the option, but a user can't deselect it from Outlook.If I set it disabled, it disabled the option, but a user can't select it from Outlook. It remains greyed out in both options and doesn't allow a user to control it.

Even if it set it to "NotConfigured", it still remains GreyedOut.

So any ideas how to achieve this requirement. Is there any other setting which I am neglecting?

Do you have any other GPO that might be setting this ?

As I said above we set the Exchange cached mode using GPO. I have re-check using gpresult, we have only one GPO.

I am looking for an option to allow a user to select/deselect the "Download shared folders"  with Exchange cache mode enabled ( Exchange cached mode option shouldn't be available to select/deselect from outlook).

It was GPO precedence problem. Identify it using gpresult -r .  Had to delete the registry key for group membership on a client side.
