GPO Not Applying - Office 2016 - Automatic picture download RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm hoping someone can help me because it seemed the GPO just stopped working. I created an Office - Outlook GPO to enable the download of pictures. In Outlook this setting is located File --> Options --> Trust Center --> Trust Center Settings --> Automatic Download --> "Don't download pictures automatically in standard HTML email messages or RSS items. We deal with a ton of vendors and clients. The safe sender list has a limit of 1,000 and someone already reached it. I prefer to turn this feature off and the setting is in the GPO located User Config --> Admin Templates --> Microsoft Outlook 2016 --> Security --> Automatic Picture Download Settings --> "Display pictures and external content in HTML e-mail" 

    This is a user config GPO and is applied to user OU. I did download the newest ADMX templates. The Outlook version is 2002 (Build 12527.20988).
