Chris-
Here's the issue. From your original email, you changed the path of the reg
value to the Policies key and you can't actually do that arbitarirly. The
application itself (in this case Outlook) has to be explicitly coded to look
in that path. If its not, but rather is looking in a different registry
path, your ADM file needs to reflect that (and live with the consequences of
tattooing unfortunately).

> Hello Chris, do you see your setting in the registry.pol file 

there is a registry.pol file in each policy on the DC it seems.
Winpolicies displays the following:

  Policy Display Name: Force Closest GC
  Attrributes:
     Options: 0
     Version: 327685
         Computer Version: 5
         User Version    : 5
     DSPath:
LDAP://CN=User,cn={2CFAEE70-2785-4618-9BB6-33DB3620ABF3},cn=policies,cn=
system,DC=xxx,DC=Corp,DC=Local
     FileSysPath:
\\xxx.Corp.Local\SysVol\xxx.Corp.Local\Policies\{2CFAEE70-2785-4618-9BB6
-33DB3620ABF3}\User
     GPOName: {2CFAEE70-2785-4618-9BB6-33DB3620ABF3}
     Extensions: 
     Raw Extensions: 
 
[{35378EAC-683F-11D2-A89A-00C04FBBCFA2}{0F6B957E-509E-11D1-A7CC-0000F875
71E3}]
       Registry Editor handled these Snapins:
          Administrative Templates (Users)
     lParam: (null)
     lParam2: (null)
     Link: LDAP://OU=Users,OU=Site Name,OU=Corp,OU=Service
Delivery,DC=xxx,DC=Corp,DC=Local
     The GPO is linked to an organizational unit.
 

 
\\xxx.Corp.Local\SysVol\xxx.Corp.Local\Policies\{2CFAEE70-2785-4618-9BB6
-33DB3620ABF3}\User\registry.pol Entries:
          Key Name: Software\Policies\Microsoft\Exchange\Exchange
Provider
          Value Name:DS Server
          Value Type: REG_SZ
          Value: h

The "Value: h" line isn't the entire string, but this seems to be a
winpolicies display problem as other policies listed in the output also
just display 1 character from their value.
