Outlook Security Features Administrative Package

If your organization is using Microsoft Outlook® 98/2000/2002 with a server that has server-side security, such as Microsoft Exchange Server, you can customize the security features to meet your organization's needs. For example, you can help control the types of attached files blocked by Outlook, modify the Outlook Object Model warning notifications, and specify user- or group-security levels.

The Outlook Security Features Administrative Package (admpack.exe) consists of four files, packaged into one self-extracting executable. You can find this downloadable file on the Office XP Resource Kit Downloads page. When you run the executable, the following files are copied to a location you specify:

  • OutlookSecurity.oft, an Outlook template that enables you to customize the security settings on the Microsoft Exchange server.
  • Readme.doc, a document that provides information on the values and settings available in the template and describes how to deploy the new settings on Exchange Server.
  • Hashctl.dll, the file for the Trusted Code control, a tool used by the template to specify trusted COM add-ins.
  • Comdlg32.ocx, a control that provides a user interface for selecting the trusted COM add-in.

Install the Outlook Security Features Administrative Package

The Outlook Security Features Administrative Package must be installed separately from the other applications — it is not installed by the Office Resource Kit Setup program. To install the Outlook Security Features Administrative Package, run Admpack.exe from the \Files\PFiles\ORKTools\ORK10\Tools\Admpack\ folder on the Office Resource Kit CD. If you are installing the Outlook Security Features Administrative Package from an Office Enterprise Edition CD, the path is \ORK\Files\PFiles\ORKTools\ORK10\Tools\Admpack\. This executable will copy the four administrative files to a location you specify on your computer.
