Hi all,

 

We use Outlook in our organization and we want to deny the ability to add accounts to the windows 10 mail, contact and calendar apps.

I tried turning off the apps from policy, and it didn't work. I need this because the mail app is changing the default settings in the computer and when clicking on a link for sending an email it opens the app instead of outlook.

 

Thanks, Rahamim.
