    Web Traffic Via Outlook

    Does anyone have any ideas as to how you can block students using the toolbar in outlook to access the web as this by-passes our webfiltering software.


    Cheers

    Hi Shane

    By using the Outlook adm template in your Group Policy is probably your best bet.

    and/or

    you could make a mst that you use when installing Office that doesnt allow access to that toolbar

    (see the office resource kit i think - should have the answers your looking for)

    Regards
    Nath

    Make them use the Outlook Web interface. It'll save you a lot of tears, trust me.
    BTW, it is an Office wide problem that if you block a users internet access they can use the online clip-art option and other Office online options to gain access as it forces the system to open IE and not the user. ADM templates will fix this problem for you.
