Specify activation manager retry limit for web extensions

This policy setting allows you to specify the retry limit Outlook uses before disabling a web extension during activation.

If you enable this policy setting, you can specify the activation manager retry limit. If the web extension requires more than the specified activation alert threshold for the number of occurrences specified by the activation manager retry limit during an Outlook session, Outlook automatically disables the web extension.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Outlook uses the default activation manager retry limit of 3 occurrences. The maximum activation manager retry limit is 5 occurrences, and the minimum activation manager retry limit is 1 occurrence.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
