Manage Yahoo Messenger using Group Policy

Everyone loves Yahoo Messenger. And a lot of companies use it as their instant messenger of choice. But, if you are, then, you already know there’s nothing provided to manage that using Group Policy.

But with PolicyPak, you’re all set. With this our free pre-Configured PolicyPak for Yahoo Messenger, you’ll be able to deliver lots of Yahoo Messenger settings PLUS lock down areas of Yahoo Messenger that users shouldn’t access or change. So if you want to ensure that users can’t “mess up their Yahoo Messenger settings” then check out this video.

There’s simply no way to manage Yahoo Messenger using Group Policy any other way. We’re more than a mere ADM template. PolicyPak is a true management system, which can lock down the Yahoo Messenger and a just about every application to ensure users cannot work around your set policies.

You can deliver key settings to ensure Yahoo Messenger starts when it should, like what is seen here.
You can dictate the Idle times for the Yahoo Messenger client, like what is seen here.
Or you can dictate networking items, to your users – just like this.

Then, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Yahoo Messenger, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way:Flash, WinZip, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.

When you’re ready to get serious about managing Yahoo Messenger, PolicyPak is ready for you.
