    Have you run the GP Result Wizard (in GPMC) to check which settings should be / are being applied?

    Normally this sort of behaviour involves a policy conflict

      Err, GPMC is the Group Policy Management Console.
      I think you mean RSOP - Resulting Set Of Policies.
      And there is nothing particularly SBS specific about this thread - so if no objection is received within 24 hrs I will move it to the Group Policy Forum. OK?
      TIA

        For clarification, this is an excerpt from the Technet web site.

        Group Policy Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) reports Group Policy settings that are applied to a user or computer. Group Policy Results in Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) requests RSoP data from a target computer and presents this in a report in HTML format. Group Policy Modeling requests the same type of information, but the data reported is from a service that simulates RSoP for a combination of computer and user. This simulation is performed on a domain controller running Windows Server 2003 and is then returned to the computer running GPMC for presentation. Finally, the RSoP Microsoft Management Console (MMC) provides an alternative way to display this information, although Group Policy Results is generally the preferred method.

        The GPResults wizard (accessible from GPMC) and RSOP report the same information.
