Hi

I want our users to have no access to http:// sites but still have email

Is this possible?
Thanks

    Hi Oli,

    Use the group policy to disable browsing on all the client machines.

    IE includes seven configuration tabs that you can access either from the
    Tools, Internet Options menu or from the Internet Options Control Panel
    applet; The tabs are

    General--Basic options for configuring the home page, temporary Internet
    file settings, and history
    Security--Settings for configuring Internet security options (e.g., ActiveX
    options)
    Privacy--Privacy settings for Internet connections
    Content--Settings for Internet connection ratings and personal profile
    information
    Connections--Settings for configuring dial-up and firewall options
    Programs--Executables used for various Internet programs
    Advanced--Advanced options

    You can use Group Policy to disable any of these tabs. First, start Group
    Policy Editor (GPE) for a specific policy (e.g., from the Microsoft
    Management Console--MMC--Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in,
    right-click a container, select Properties from the context menu, select
    the Group Policy tab, then select Edit). Navigate to User Configuration,
    Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Internet Explorer, Internet
    Control Panel. There, you'll see an option for disabling each of the seven
    tabs.


    Thanks,
