Configuring Windows 7 Libraries using Group Policy Preferences

One of the most useful features in Windows 7 is Libraries. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most painful to administer in a domain. In an ideal world you'd be able to use Group Policy to add or remove whatever library locations you desired. However Microsoft seems to have forgot about Libraries when they updated Group Policy for Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 as there is no Group Policy to control Libraries.

One of the email accounts of the company was a Shared Mailbox for the company info line that I created with an Exchange Management Shell command. Because the mailbox wasn't created using the SBS Console it wasn't visible in the list of Exchange Mailboxes the POP3 Connector could download to. Fortunately, it was an easy fix.
