Outlook 2003 and exchange 2010 – enabling encryption – where was that GPO and other issues

By now you’ve noticed that Outlook 2003 doesn’t do encryption out of the box, and you KNOW there’s a better way of doing this than touching every desktop by hand – here it is:

KB2006508 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2006508 talks you through how to build the GPO for Outlook 2003 and 2007


While were talking about Outlook not connecting – KB924625 mentions a number of issues you may face troubleshooting Outlook connecting to 2007/2010



While were talking Outlook and Exchange two articles are also super interesting:

And while were talking about clients and what they’re doing:

Exchange Server User Monitor





While there’s plenty more material out there, I wanted to put a marker in the ground and start somewhere – I’m hoping I’ll update this post as I dig up more. Comments are enabled on this post and super welcome!
