|I've got this annoying little problem. We have a small network of 5 people, working from within a windows 2008 terminal server. It's a single-server scenario.|
They run Outlook 2010 with IMAP for mail, and the problem is some attachments are being blocked by the "zone block". Word files (.doc) are impossible to open unless you save the file > right-click it and unblock it first.
Obviously I've googled my brains out, and all articles point to the group policy > comp conf > administrative templates > Windows components > Attachment manager, just as this petri.co.il article does (same for Vista, win7 and 2008 as far as I can tell): http://www.petri.co.il/unblock-file...
However. I've edited the GP and activated the option "Do not preserve zone information in file attachments". This had no effect at all though. And considering this is a terminal server environment, I though "well hey it must be set in the local GP of the specific server" - but no. This also failed.
The next step was to set the originating zone as trusted in Internet Options, but that didn't work either. I just can't get rid of it. Does anyone know of a way?
Edit: I didn't see the Server 2003 tag when I published my question, sorry for the confusion.
