Default Domain Users, Local Permissions, and Outlook

Hi all,

Our network setup currently has users logging in as domain users, and they are all local administrators on their own computers. We wanted to restrict them to limited or power users, but when we did this on a computer, we got a message when trying to open Outlook 2003 that said "Cannot open Microsoft Office Outlook." Are we missing permissions somewhere? Is there a conflict problem with the domain settings? Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Matt

Is this an active directory domain env?

Users are on Windows XP SP2. Server is Windows 2003 SB Server. Yes, we are using active directory. We have configured permissions via GPO. Need any more information?

You did this on a computer ? You needed to do this via Active Directory...

Do you have any ACL's setup having to do with outlook ?
Do you have gpo reqs on outlook ?

ACL's = Access control Lists.
GPO = Group Policy

I was basically asking if your ACLS within your GPO have any reqs for Outlook at all. Or basically are there any rules you have set for outlook at all on the domain ?

Edit : Is this only happening to one machine ?
