We just migrated to Outlook 2003 from Outlook 2000...and now all of a sudden when I try to access my email from our Helpdesk software I get an alert box that says:

 "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have
   stored in Outlook.  Do you want to allowthis?

  If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you should
   choose "No".

   _ Allow Access for   (and then there is a drop down box
                                  that you can choose a time frame up
                                   to 10 minutes)"

This is VERY annoying and we'd like to be rid of it....anyone know how??

Greetings, orrsafety !

This part of security setting in Outlook 2003.  You cannot get rid of the warning.  You can auto step through the warning.

Greetings, orrsafety.

Just to expand a bit on war1's post, this security feature was first introduced in Outlook 2000, but it was optional.  That's because it was an add on Microsoft deployed to combat the viruses and worms being written to use Outlook as a transport mechanism.  With Outlook 2002 and beyond that add on became an integral part of the product.

Cheers!

Hi there, orrsafety!

There is another way of bypassing this message, but will require someone to do a little bit of programming.  Redemption for Outlook (http://www.dimastr.com/redemption) is a widely used tool for bypassing the Outlook object model.  This basically means that it will do the same thing as Outlook, but won't rout it through Outlook itself, but will use it's own code to execute the command.

Hope this helps, also!

Cheers,

Dave
