Configure Cross Folder Content in conversation view

This policy setting controls how conversation view in Outlook is loaded and whether Cross Folder Content is turned on or off.

If you enable this policy setting, you may choose one of these options:

- On and cross-store (default): Cross Folder Content is on and cross-store. Data will be pulled from all connected data files whether they are cached or online.
- Off: Cross Folder Content is turned off.
- On and current: Cross Folder Content is on, but data is only pulled from the current data file.
- On and local: Cross Folder Content is on, but data is only pulled from the current data file and any other local data files.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Cross Folder Content will be turned on and pulled from all connected data files.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
