    2. In the Add/Remove Templates dialog box, click Add.

    3. In the Policy Templates dialog box, locate and select the 2426686_template.adm file. Click Open.

    4. In the Add/Remove Templates dialog box, click Close.

  3. Depending on your version of Windows, locate either User Configuration-Administrative Templates-Classic Administrative Templates (ADM) or User Configuration-Administrative Templates.

  4. Expand the Microsoft Outlook 2010 node, and then select the Account Settings-Exchange node. The following new policy settings are available after you add this custom Group Policy template:

    • RPC/HTTP Connection Flags

    • Proxy Server Name
