Outlook 2010 disable text message SMS account creation


  • For one of my clients I’m trying to disable text message account creation in Outlook 2010.

    Users are able to create this text messages account by going to:

    File -> Add Account -> Text Messaging SMS or

    File -> Add Account -> Manual Configure server settings…. -> Text Messaging SMS

    (Print screen

    I’ve tried to disable this feature in the Office 2010 Group Policy Administrative Template outlk14.adm but I can’t find an option for text messaging. (all other account types are available)

    I also looked in the Office Fluent User Interface Control Identifiers but I can’t find Text Messaging option.

    Does anyone know if it’s possible to disable this feature?

    Thanks in advance.

  • The policy is located at:

    Microsoft Outlook 2010 \ Miscellaneous \ Prevent MAPI services from being added

    Enable this policy, and append ''MSOMS" to the list.
