Hi there,

I'm pretty new to Group Policies, but am working in the background to set
some up for my small office (8 users).

Our network consists of Small Business Server 2000, Exchange 2000, ISA
Server, and 8 x Windows 2000 PC's. As I'm new to group policies, for each
new piece of software, I'd installed it manually on each PC. I see that the
way to do this in future is to get the msi file and assign or publish it via
group polices.

In the meantime, is there any way I can edit or control how Outlook 2000 or
other Office 2000 products work for the users? In particular, I'd like to
hide some options tabs for Outlook (to stop people from requesting read and
delivery receipts for every email they send), and also wondered about
letting them create new folders or delete from folders (such as Sent Items
and Deleted Items?).

Can I control these with some sort of group policy snap-in as it is now? If
so, how? Or would I have to uninstall everything, then assign software from
scratch using group policies, then control them from there using a snap-in?
I have googled on this, but became a bit confused. I read something about
ADM files, but never quite 'got it.'

Thanks for any help, it's appreciated.

Regards,

Ste

hello,
this will help you

just add the .adm files in the group policy editor and you will be able to
set a lot of office stuff.

Hi Omko, thanks for posting that link, I will take a look at it now and try
and add the .adm files to the group policy editor.

Thanks again,

Ste
