As you remember, in our previous newsletter, we introduced the “public folder security forms” which is used in Outlook 2003 to control security settings centrally. In Outlook 2007, we can use either public folder security forms or Group Policy to manage security for attachments and for add-ins. The ability to use Group Policy object (GPO) settings to store security settings is a new feature in Outlook 2007.

 

If your environment uses public folders, and if you use public folder security forms in earlier versions of Outlook, you can continue to use public folder security forms. You can do this after you make a minor change to the appropriate registry settings. Also, Outlook 2007 is designed to take advantage of the GPO settings to manage security for attachments and for add-ins.
