True, I have followed the same advice. But even more frustrating is that IE
Maint. Configures _all_ settings, it's not possible to leave some settings
unconfigured. 
  I also looked into Group Policy Preferences (great tool btw.), but there
is no option there for assigning sites to zones. Maybe I should script the
sites-to-zone-assigning

>>Hi everybody!

>>I am setting up policies for IE7, and I want to assign some websites to

>>User Configuration:

>>  -Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Security
>>Page/Internet Zone
>>    -Site to Zone Assignment List

>>The websites are given the value of 1, and then they are added to the
