InformationThis policy setting controls whether Outlook executes scripts associated with custom forms
or folder home pages for shared folders. If you enable this policy setting, Outlook cannot
execute any scripts associated with shared folders, overriding any configuration changes
on users' computers. If you disable this policy setting, Outlook will automatically run any
scripts associated with custom forms or folder home pages for shared folders. If you do not
configure this policy setting, the behavior is the equivalent of setting the policy to Enabled.
The recommended state for this setting is- Enabled.
In Outlook 2010, folders can be associated with custom forms or folder home pages that
include scripts that access the Outlook object model. These scripts can add functionality to
the folders and items contained within, but dangerous scripts can pose security risks. By
default, Outlook does not allow scripts included in custom forms or folder home pages for
shared folders to execute. If this configuration is changed, users can inadvertently run
dangerous scripts when using shared folders, which can put their computers or data at risk.
SolutionTo implement the recommended configuration state, set the following Group Policy setting
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Outlook 2010\Outlook
Options\Other\Advanced\Do not allow Outlook object model scripts to run for shared
Impact-Enabling this setting enforces the default configuration in Outlook 2010, and therefore is
unlikely to cause usability issues for most users.
