Outlook GPO breaks Teams meeting form

Hi,

We are implementing Outlook Add-ins management via GPO (the admx templates are the latest), but once I enabled the GPO the invitation email has a broken HTML view.

Hi @Anahaym

According to your description, your issue seems more related to outlook. I will remove teams tag from your thread, hope you get better response.

Hi @Anahaym,
Yes, you can add it via the path below:
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\office\16.0\outlook\Resiliency

Or just add the Microsoft.VbaAddinForOutlook.1 add-in into your List of managed add-ins via GPO. Both methods should work the same.

strange, I've tried already this via GPO and it didn't work. Looks like I made a mistake because it works now.

Thank you!

this is my mistake:

Looks like you just did not grant value to the "Microsoft.VbaAddinForOutlook.1" key,

Hi @Anahaym,

I did do the same tests as yours and just got the same result. These registry values can indeed block all other add-ins and enable Teams add-ins as we wish. However, it looks like that there are some other factors which would influence Teams Meeting display that has been blocked by these registry values as well. I tried much research but have not got any useful information yet.

Is this add-ins management a must operation? If possible, it is more suggested for you to cancel this operation to make things back to normal.

Hi JeffYang-MSFT,

Thank you for your answer. Currently we are only testing this possibility to block unwished add-ins. We need to find a solution as our IS department insists to have it enabled.

Hi @Anahaym,
Thanks for your reply. How is everything going now?
I did some more test about your issue and found that when we add both Microsoft.VbaAddinForOutlook.1 and TeamsAddin.FastConnect to the managed add-in list and keep them both enabled, the Teams meeting form can just work fine. It should worth a shot. Hope this can solve your issue then.
