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.

Subject: [gptalk] GP setting for Outlook 2003 - Not showing....

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 

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.
