Microsoft Office 2007 – ADMX finally

Comments Off

Finally MS released the Office 2007 templates for Group Policy in the new ADMX-format.

You can now benefit here also to have those stored in your Central Store so that you decrease the load for replicating GPO’s between servers etc.

These new templates is of course not with all languages and I wouldn’t be to sure that they will be released either.
The download file also contains an excel-file for reference.

Download the new templates here

Office 2007 ADM-template problems

Comments Off

As you could see in my last post I found a problem with the Common Feed List so I wondered how many more issues there were which I haven’t discoved yet so I did a search and these I found as KB-articles.

Cached Exchange Mode is enabled in Outlook 2007 even though you set the “Do not use Cached Exchange Mode for all new Outlook profiles” setting in the Office Customization Tool

The Junk Mail Import List setting in the Office Customization Tool is not set correctly in the Group Policy templates

The “Synchronize Outlook RSS Feeds with Common Feed List” setting in the Office Customization Tool is not set correctly in the Group Policy templates

The “Automatically download enclosures” setting for RSS feeds in the Office Customization Tool is not set correctly in the Group Policy templates

The “Prevent users from adding PSTs to Outlook profiles and/or prevent using Sharing-Exclusive PSTs” setting is configured incorrectly in the Office Customization Tool and in the Group Policy templates

The”Disables the shortcut key” setting is configured incorrectly in the Office Customization Tool and in the Group Policy templates

The “Junk e-mail protection level” setting in the Office Customization Tool is not set correctly in the Group Policy templates

The free/busy grid displays only your working hours when you create a new meeting request in Outlook 2007

The “Make Outlook the default program for E-mail, Contacts, and Calendar” setting is disabled in Outlook 2007

Since some of these settings are commonly used I figured that it could be worth posting them here!

Synchronize Outlook RSS Feeds with Common Feed List

2 Comments

I do almost all of my settings for Windows using GPO whenever possible and Office is no difference so when configuring Office 2007 I got a problem with my RSS-feeds.

My list of RSS-feeds in IE differed from the list I had in Outlook which surprised me since I know I choose so use the Common Feed List.

I check in Outlook and found out that the checkbox (Sync RSS feeds to the Common Feed List) was greyed out and unticked even if I know I selected the right choice when configuring my GPO.

So I started searching on the Internet and found one hit, which is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932126. Apparently MS has made a mistake in the outlk12.adm file (and also in the outlk12.opa file for OCT) so when you select enable for switching this function on, what really happens is that you turn it off.

The adm-files for Office 2007 you can download here but note that the above has not been corrected so you need to change this first thing (or keep it in mind :) ).
