    Question Write protection PST files

    Is there a way in a corporate network environment to write protect, or if you will disable writing to a pst file connect to MS Outlook? Most workstation are on XP SP3, using Outlook 2003.

    Thanks,

    You want to stop writing to them.

    Disconnect them from your mailbox and uncheck AutoArchive incase its set to archive to it. Move it off their box and onto a NAS/SAN.

    Change the permissions on the PST so they no longer have write access, only read may let them still open but not add content.

    or my favorite ... Delete it.

    More info on the situation and scope may help get a more suitable answer though.

    Without going through all that, can the attached pst file be made inaccessible to wright to, but still available to read from?

    You can right click on the PST file->Security->Edit the security for the user to READ only.... All other users you'd use the DENY option.

    More to the point, I'm looking for something that changes either system policy or user policy, or changes something in the registry.

    This would be done on a network wide application.
