Outlook 2013 with Custom Message Classifications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    With Outlook 2007 and 2010 you're able to activate the Message Classifications so that people are able to select the custom Classification from the exported Classification.xml through several Registry settings (export was done on Exchange 2010 with all updates and patches applied).

    I tried to do the same with Outlook 2013, but I'm not able to select my custom Message Classifications:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Policy]
    "AdminClassificationPath"="c:\\Classifications.xml"
    "EnableClassifications"=dword:00000001
    "TrustClassifications"=dword:00000001

    The Permissions tab/ribbonbutton is empty and I'm not able to select any option. While using ProcessMonitor, I didn't see Outlook trying to read the registry and/or the file.

    Message Classifications do work with Outlook Webapp and previous Outlook revisions.

    Does anybody know if the values have changed or if MS has disabled the use of Message Classifications in Outlook 2013?

  • I could only find information about 2007 & 2010 and there's completely nothing about 2013.

    I suppose it's not supported.

    If there's anyone who has information about 2013, please also let me know.

  • Same issue here, the reg key will only be loaded when you click on the 'Permission' button, so you need to click the button once in order to see related events in Process Monitor.

    "AdminClassificationPath"="c:\\Classifications.xml"
    "EnableClassifications"=dword:00000001
    "TrustClassifications"=dword:00000001

    However, I still unable to resolve the issue as I can see 'EnableClassifications' and 'TrustClassifications' loaded, but not the 'AdminClassificationPath'..   anybody encounter the same?
