I am using Outlook 2000 SR-1
I have created a form that reads Outlook address book using MAPI. Whenever I open that Form I get a message
" A program is trying to access email addresses you have stored in outlook. Do you want to allow this? Then I Have some choices: I can deny or I can allow for 1,2,5,10minutes. If I dont select 1 minute, I am not able to do anything with the form. Only if I did select the check box "Allow for 1 0r 2 minutes" then only I am able to get the program to work.
MOST IMPORTANT I am only person who has ever seen this kind of message, everybody else who is using this form in our office is not getting any errors. Please help me. Let me know if I can provide you with any other information

Set olemSession = Application.CreateObject("MAPI.Session")
ReturnCode = olemSession.Logon( Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI").CurrentUser, "", False, False, 0 )
Set user = olemSession.CurrentUser
Set UserFrom = Item.UserProperties.Find("ReqEmail")
