      In Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, you can configure security options by using new Group Policy settings. These settings were previously configurable by customizing the Exchange Security Form and publishing the form to an Microsoft Exchange Server public folder.

      If you want to establish trusted add-ins for Outlook by using Group Policy as part of the Outlook 2007 security options feature, you first run a small program to generate the hash key required when setting the policy. The new hash generator program is necessary because the hash value previously created by the Exchange Server security form now must be created manually and then included in the trusted add-ins Group Policy setting. This download includes the files required to run the hash generator program and a Readme document with links to more information about using the new Group Policy settings.
