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.

    Hello andreat,

    are you doing the mail from code or some other program?

    it sounds like the outlook security update

    you might also want to consider this utility to click the ok button for you

    hope this helps a bit

    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?
