Warning comes up when linking program to Outlook rule ??

I have a small program that I have set to run whenever an e-mail comes in through a specific account. It works well, but the problem is I get a message saying that "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this ?"

The problem is that I HAVE to click yes twice beofre this program is allowed to run, which pretty much defeats the purpose as I want it to run automatically.

I have tried to set Macros \ Security to low but has no effect. Is there something else I need to do

Hi GianniP,

You will need a thirdparty tool, such as ClickYes (which "autoclicks" the security warning), or possibly use Redemption
to tell Outlook what you are doing is "safe".
