  • Hi Majigougou,

    Thanks for visiting our forum.

    >> May I ask if you can use AD GPO to use the user foreground ost is only applied in the VDI environment, other environments will not be applied.
    Due to the limitations of the environment, I could not  test the behaviors in the VDI environment you mentioned. I really researched a lot about the AD GPO only applied in the VDI environment but have not found any useful information so far.

    Since here we mainly focus on general issues about Outlook desktop client in Conventional environment, I'm afraid little we know about AD GPO in the VDI environment. To better solve your issue, it is suggested to post a new thread to the Outlook for Developers forum for more help.

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thanks for your understanding and hope your question will be resolved soon.

    Regards,

    Jeff Yang

    Your scenario may be suitable for using Group Policy Loopback processing (apply user-configs by linking to an OU containing computers)
