Hi


A user keeps getting

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

It appears every time he tries to reply to an email.

No one else gets it.


Why is this ?

How can I stop it from appearing ?

LFC1980,

The issue is due to a security update to Outlook.  If you do not want to use ClickYes, then you will have to manually step through the process.

It is by design and part of a security Service Pack.  You can't, unless you uninstall the SP/update.  Not sure if this one can be uninstalled.  Some can't.

Check to ensure "ALL" of the other machines do have this SP installed?  Does the individual who "is" receiving the dialog using a PDA or similar device?

Ok will check that (if all of them have it)

Greetings, LFC1980 !

This is new Outlook security features introduced in Outlook 2000 (SR2 and newer), and  installed by default with Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003. These features help guard against most viruses that are spread by email attachments, as well as protect users from worm viruses that replicate through Microsoft Outlook.

...or could it be some type of virus that his machine is infected with i.e. something else is trying to access outlook ?

Does the user have a third party program accessing the email address book?  There may be some special software that user is using that is causing this warning.

The prog may fix it, but we dont want to instal a Click yes prog, because we dont want to click yes to everything.

in some cases we may want "no"
