GPO Effect

By jgeldenhuys ·
If a GPO is enabled that disables the function of selecting cached mode for outlook, would the outcome be all outlook machines changing to cached mode if that gpo was set to not defined?

When you create an outlook profile and choose MSExchange server, you give server name, user account and can choose if want cache mode or not. This option is valid if gpo was set to no defined. If you enable or disable by gpo, the check box for cache mode is inactive.

I think you have to choose between enable or disable for your's users which already have outlook profile. No defined option will preserve actual setting

I'm not sure if you're confused, or I am. But if I understand you correctly, you're asking what the effect would be of changing a GPO setting from "enabled" to "not defined." The effect would be that the setting would stay as it was on all of the workstations (i.e., in your example, the "cached mode" checkbox would be blank), but instead of being greyed out (i.e., not able to be changed) on the workstations, the user would now be able to change the setting at will if he/she knew how to do so.

Is that what you wanted to know?

Thats pretty much it. I needed to confirm what i suspected the outcome would be. The easiest way would have been to test is, but the enviroment i'm in doesnt permit that. Thanks curlergirl.
