HI Craig


Well, Outlook should pop up a wizard if the user does not have a MAPI
profile. Another way to add the profile would be to use PRF files (check out
Office Customization Tool).


Why not just exclude the user from that CP policy setting to fix the issue
right away - eg. by denying the specific user or a special group for these
situations? So, next time you have the problem, place the user in the
"exclude group" (AD replication), log off, logon, fix problem, remove user
from group (AD replication), log off, log on. There are other methods, but I
like this one because it's pretty simple.


Happy New Year

Subject: [gptalk] How do admin access CP on the users profile


Hi all
I have a GPO that prevents access to certain things on the users
workstations. For example their printers, control panel, etc, etc. I have
excluded the admins from the GPO so if someone logs onto the pc with admin
rights the GPO doesn't apply anymore.
My problem is this : One of my technicians worked on the users profile (no
admin rights) and deleted her outlook profile from within outlook 2003.Now
in Outlook you cannot add a exchange account without going to the CP, which
is the problem as the tecnician can't access the CP because he is on the
users profile. Logging on as the admin won't help either as outlook need to
be setup on the users profile.
1. What do i do?
2. Is there any way that i can restrict things for the users but the admins
can access it (for example printers) without having to log off and on again.
