    Outlook Settings

    Locked

    by the young one ·

    Hi Everyone,

    My system is:
    XP SP1 Clients with Office XP sp1
    Exchange 2000
    Windows 2000 AD Native Mode.

    I’m patching the Outlook Profiles to the Exchange mailboxes by a setting in the Office XP Resource Kit.

    I need to make some settings automatically, thru one of the following methods:

    – A Registry Key
    – Outlook.PRF file
    – Custom Maintainance Wizard
    – Group Policy Template

    The settings I need to make are:
    1. Instead of the Outlook Bar showing, only the folder list is to be displayed.
    2. I need users personal contacts to be displayed in the address book (I can do this manually by right clicking on it and setting it as ‘show as an address book’).

    I can do these manually, but when I look in the registry to add it to a script, or to modify my Default User Profile, the keys always seem to be located under a GUID key, rendering it useless for another user.

    My SOE is 95% done, and these are the last bugs I need to iron out…

    Ta muchly.

    The Young One.

      Hello;
      I noticed at this URL some guidelines pertaining to the profile management.
      http://www.microsoft.com/office/ork/2000/three/50t4_6.htm
      Looking at the matrix I noticed this (see below) indicating that you can control this. It appears that you have alrady gotten to the level of research trying to tweek the profile. For what ever this is worth, it would appear that what your attempting to do is feasible. How are you editing the profiles?

      Disable items in user interface
      Predefined
      Disable command bar buttons and menu items
      Disable shortcut keys
      Custom
      Disable command bar buttons and menu items
      Disable shortcut keys

        URL didn’t work. I am using the Custom Installation Wizard from the Office XP Resource Kit.
