Hi Darren,

 

Nope, it's listed in the spreadsheet as a per-user setting. Here it is
copied and pasted from the spreadsheet.

 

 


Enable RPC encyrption

        Yes

        Yes

        Yes

Yes

                        Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\RPC

EnableRPCEncryption

1 | 0

        Checked: RPC Encryption is enabled. | Unchecked: RPC Encryption is
disabled.

 

The "yes" columns correspond to "new", "SP1", "SP2" and "SP3"

 

I opened up the Outlook ADM in notepad, did a search for EnableRPCEncryption
and even just RPC and nothing was in there.

 

I might try to just make a custom ADM to see if that will work. Looks like a
"bug" in the documentation as best as I can tell. You can download the
Office2003 ADM pack from that link below and take a look to confirm if I am
correct or just missing something.

 

Thanks,

 

Michael

So, are you saying that the spreadsheet lists it as being per-computer but
you only see it per-user?

Ay carumba! This is very frustrating then. I have been scouring some fourms
and Google all morning trying to determine if this is in fact a mistake in
the documentation. Here is one quote from the MS TEchnet forums.

 

"'Enable RPC encyrption" is an option you can enable with a group policy if
you import the Outlk11.adm file.

 

instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826170

extract the download to find an excel spreadsheet explaining this and other
options.

Michael-

My guess is that the spreadsheet is simply wrong. Your Outlook version will
not affect what you see in GP Editor at all. Frankly, I think the Office
team has done a fairly half-*ssed job of documenting the ADMs so it would
not surprise me if they just put them in the wrong place.

Hi Omar,

 

Yup, I'm covered on both of those. I created an entirely new GPO and added
the Outlook 2003 ADM to it. The date on the ADM checked out as well
5\10\2007.

 

For the Outlook 2003 policies, they only appear in the User settings and not
in the Computer settings.

 

Thanks for the email Omar!

Michael,

 

The Outlook ADM templates have to be imported into each particular GPO you
create unless you are using Vista/W2k8 and a central store. Also- once you
add in the ADM templates you should check both the computer and user
configuration nodes to see if it appears in one section but not the other.

Hi there all. I've been trying to figure something out in the last 24 hours
that has been quite confusing. The issue I am having is this, I imported the
most recent Outlook 2003 ADM files in order to enable the option "Encrypt
RPC Communication" but the option does not appear in my group policies that
I create.

 

I confirmed that I have the right ADM by double checking the excel
spreadsheet that breaks down the various settings and sure enough, it's
there. I have triple checked my steps, extracted the ADM, created a new GP,
added the admin template, and it's just not there. I tried it on both my XP
desktop and my DC.

 

The only thing I can think of, and perhaps someone can confirm this, but do
I need Outlook 2003 SP3 in order to see that setting? I am running Outlook
2007 here on my local desktop so that's about all I can think is the only
thing holding it up.

 

If anyone has any thoughts, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,
