Disable "remember password" option in Outlook
We are trying to disable the "remember password" option in Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 across our organization because our users keep forgetting their passwords..and when it comes time to change thier passwords (every 90 days) we get in influx of tickets for resets because users don't recall what their old password is.
We figure, we can take this option away from the end-user, thereby forcing them to enter the password in daily. I know how to disable this feature in the program itself (in email options under security there is an option to "always ask for password") but the users will just find a way to re-enable this option.
Does anyone know of a way, through a script, that will disable this feature in Outlook 2007 and 2010, or at least set the default to "always ask for password"?
I have searched through the registry settings, and haven't found anything so far. If I could find a corresponding registry key for this, I would just save the registry key to a network drive with the settings we want, then automate a regsvr32 that will import it into the end-users registry.
Does anyone know where this registry key would be located? I've googled until I'm sick, no help there. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
Add the 'Security" key and "PromptForCredentials" value to the registry with the following command: reg.exe add "HKCU\Software\Policies\MicroSoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security" /v PromptForcredentials /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
