Yes this option is available with the office 2002 ADM's. If you've only loaded the Office 2002 ADM, you also need to ensure you have the outlook 2002 ADM loaded into your policy as well. You should then find the policy you want here: User config - Admin templates - MS outlook 2002 - tools options - Mail format - message format.

I want to lock this down in a 2K domain. I've added the office template into our default domain policy (2002) and I'm looking for a way to disable this but cannot find it. Is there such a configurable option in a GPO? Notice: This transmission contains confidential information intended only for the use of the individual or entity to whom it is addressed.
