I know how to do the DumpsterAlwaysOn reg hack for Exchange on a client
But can anyone tell me how to push it to all clients through Group
policy Management?

I've had a look in Grp Pol Mgmnt by;

1. Creating a new group policy object
2. right click - Edit; then Navigating to - Computer Configuration,
Windows Settings, Security Settings, Registry.
3. I can add a new key, but I cant change values for this key.

Can someone please help?
