"A program is trying to access email addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this?"

Dear Experts
I've just recently changed to use Outlook (from Lotus Notes).
After doing the usual setup, whenever i tried to send a new mail, i encountered a pop-up box with the above question. (See the title)

Appreciate if you can advise the solution.

Hi Bruintje
Thanks for your answer.
Does it mean that this is a security feature in Outlook and it is not some virus or something?
If yes, i can just ignore it right?
