According to the article below, the DisablePST setting can also be
enforced on a user-by-user basis by putting that value in the HKCU
policies key. If you've added the Outlook ADM file, you can also prevent
users from creating/opening PSTs by removing the options from the user
interface. See the article for details.

This is how we do it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook]
"DisablePST"=dword:00000001

Paste that into notepad.

Your should be good.

You're correct. I just checked the Outlook 2003 SP3 ADM template and I
didn't see that setting in there.

Yes, but if I am right, you can't disable pst files, only limit the size
of them. :)

I think that setting is actually already in the Office 2003 ADM
templates isn't it?

You can create a custom adm file for this registry value. :)
