The Deploying the customized Outlook security settings to client computers section of the Readme.doc file from the Outlook Administrator Pack (Admpack.exe) outlines two methods to enable the customized Microsoft Outlook security settings for users.
Note The Outlook Administrator Pack is included in the Microsoft Office 2003 Resource Kit.
The first method is to roll out the changes with the installation of Office 2003 by using Group Policy. The second method discusses how to enable the customized settings if you did not deploy Office 2003 using Group Policy.
In the second method, you must add the configured CheckAdminSettings registry entry to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Security registry subkey on each client computer. You can configure the CheckAdminSettings registry entry to force Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 to look to the Outlook Security Settings public folder on your Microsoft Exchange server for security settings. To add the CheckAdminSettings registry entry to client computers, you can either add a registry file that contains the configured subkey to a logon script, copy the file to a shared server for users to run, or attach a shortcut to the file in an e-mail message.
This article discusses how to use a third option that is not discussed in the Readme.doc file from the Outlook Administrator Pack component (Admpack.exe) of the Office 2003 Resource Kit. In this third option, you can use a Group Policy object (GPO) to deploy the CheckAdminSettings registry entry to clients by using the Outlook virus security settings policy setting. This Group Policy setting is part of the Outlk11.adm template. If you use Group Policy in your environment, we recommend that you use this third method instead of using the second method to add the CheckAdminSettings registry entry to the client computers.
To configure a Group Policy object (GPO) to deploy the Outlook virus security settings Group Policy setting so that Outlook 2003 will look to your Exchange server for security settings, follow these steps:
Note The subkey is updated if it already exists.
The value of the CheckAdminSettings registry entry corresponds to the option that you selected in the Apply individual settings for Outlook virus security list. The following list describes the values that you can use for the CheckAdminSettings registry entry, depending on the option that you selected in the Apply individual settings for Outlook virus security list:
