Pushing a calendar default setting change to all e-mail clients from one machine

Pushing mass configuration changes down to e-mail clients requires the use of group policies. SearchExchange.com expert David Sengupta explains.

How do I pass on a change to all e-mail clients from one machine? For example, I want all clients in my network to have their "Default reminder" for calendar as five minutes. Can I set this change in one machine, and then propagate it down to all clients?
The closest you'll be able to do this is through use of Group Polices as described in Managing users' configurations by policy. I don't think you'll be able to get the degree of granularity of control over calendar reminder defaults.
