Outlook 2003 default grouping archive folder items

Hello: My organization has recently updated all of its Outlook 2000 email clients to Outlook 2003 and now the users are complaining how this version groups new archive folder items. In the 2000 version the default was no grouping specifics. With the 2003 version the default has changed to a grouping by date received. My question is does anyone know of a way that you can change the grouping options without having to go to each and every user computer? An Active Directory GPO option or direct registry hack would be great but I have yet to identify the place to do this at. Over 80% of our user community dislikes the new grouping defaults and as a temporary fix I have issued manual instructions to all of our users but just like everywhere else some of the users do not really read these types of notices. So an automatic fix would be preferred. Thanks in advance. RWJ

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need to download and install Office 2003 Policy Template Files – OUTLK11.ADM.

That will allow you too customise the autoarchive settings centrally.

Hope this helps!
