Our enterprise has migrated to MSO cloud services and now have a 5GB
mailbox size for all users. Historically our users have saved all of
their e-mail to PST files to avoid previous mailbox limitations. Our
environment has Outlook 2003 and 2007 runnign in cached exchange mode
I am planning to prevent users from writing to the PST files using Group
Policy for Office 2007 users and pushing a registry key for the Office
2003 users. We also need to plan a communication to the users
explaining the coming change.
I have 2 questions.
1. Has anyone gone through a change like this before? If so how was it
communicated to the end users? Was the elimination of PSTs successful?
2. Does anyone know of a Group Policy to prevent writing to a PST file
in Office 2003? Or how to push a registry key to stop the ability of
writing to a PST without effecting the OST?
Software/Hardware used: Office 2003/2007, Windows XP/7
