    Outlook 2016 - controlling IMAP OST size with Group Policy not working

    Hi all, I'm trying the Slipstick Forum as this has been quite helpful in the past. Here goes... Our previous implementation of Office/Outlook 2013 in a 2008R2 RDS farm ran Outlook in online mode, and allowed users to add pop3, Exchange, or IMAP accounts. Even though we had Cached Exchange Mode...

    Revert AutoArchive settings via GPO (Run Autoarchive every...)

    Hi again Diane - your suggestion, and another unrelated post regarding GPO behavior sparked something. :) Since the GPO was a user-based one, I checked the active HKCU hive for the settings. It was the DoAging reg setting, along with a few others that were present, and by their mere presence...

    Revert AutoArchive settings via GPO (Run Autoarchive every...)

    Hi Diane, thanks for the reply! Unfortunately yes, we did try "Not Configured". It had the same results. Upon logging in as the user, the AutoArchive options were still all grayed ont. :/

    Revert AutoArchive settings via GPO (Run Autoarchive every...)

    Hello Forum: In our Office 2010 GPOs, we have Enable AutoArchive set to Disabled, and Disable File|Archive set to Disabled, thus allowing our users to manually archive, but turning off the AutoArchive feature in Outlook 2010. In AutoArchive settings, all settings are grayed out, thus preventing...

    Outlook 2010 creating extremely large PST files for IMAP accounts

    Thanks for the reply Diane! The link you provided involves creating a new Send/Receive group within the OCT, and then deploying to server(s). This will help, IF: when the end-user is creating a *new* IMAP account it automatically gets added to a new "IMAP Accounts" Send/Receive group, with...

    Outlook 2010 creating extremely large PST files for IMAP accounts

    Update: The users never experienced this issue in their old Office/Outlook 2007 environment. I found an article that states that Microsoft changed the default behavior when creating IMAP accounts, that sets it to "Download complete items including attachments for subscribed folders"...

    Outlook 2010 creating extremely large PST files for IMAP accounts

    We are experiencing this issue when users are creating new IMAP accounts (i.e. Gmail) in Outlook 2010. There is already a pop3 account existing, that writes to a .PST file. This new IMAP account seems to "explode" the IMAP PST file (~25 - 50G in some cases) and eat up space on the server...

    Change the default Archive location via GPO in Outlook 2010

    Hi Diane, I believe I have verified your assumption, and solved this issue by modifying our current .PRF file with the suggestions in this MS article: How to set the location of an archive .pst file in Outlook Even though it was listed as only applying to Outlook 2003 as the highest...

    Change the default Archive location via GPO in Outlook 2010

    Still looking for answers here, and figured I would update. If I specify a path in the Archive file: field, a REG_BINARY entry for the path is added to the following reg key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\search\Catalog I believe that this is just "keeping track"...

    Change the default Archive location via GPO in Outlook 2010

    Hello forum, We are deploying Outlook as part of Office 2010 SP1 via a pre-configured MSP file. Everything works fine. We are disabling Auto-Archive via GPO, but are allowing "manual" archive. If a user logs in, and chooses to create an archive, they click File - Cleanup Tools -...

    Editing a .PRF file for new users after deploying Outlook 2010 with MSP

    Re: the PST file creation - Outlook was still creating an ANSI .PST file, with the specific POP3 settings, etc. that we have configured in the PRF, even though the PRF file was renamed on the server. This whole issue was tested by deleting the roaming profile folder for the test user I was...

    Editing a .PRF file for new users after deploying Outlook 2010 with MSP

    An update to this post, after finding something out during this exercise. In order to make this change easier to deploy, I decided to copy an edited PRF file out to a network share, and then deploy to my servers via a batch/copy script. Well, this doesn't work. :( Apparently...

    Can Outlook be launched with the /cleanreminders switch multiple times?

    We are planning a large migration of customers using Outlook 2007 in a Terminal Services 2003 environment. They will be connecting to new Windows 2008 RDS servers that have Office/Outlook 2010 SP1 installed. In our beta phase, we have noticed that some of the users are experiencing the...

    Editing a .PRF file for new users after deploying Outlook 2010 with MSP

    Hello, I am researching an easy way to make a change to the current Outlook .PRF file that we have deployed to our Terminal Servers using an MSP created by the OCT. I used the "import PRF" option in the OCT, which looks like it packages the PRF within the MSP somehow, and then when the...
