I have a user who receives and popup when creating new mail messages in Outlook 2003 that says, "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this?  If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you shoud choose "No".  Then it gives you the option to allow access for a certain amount of time.  Why is this happening.  Any ideas?

Greetings, tonycw69 !

These are the effect of Outlook security features introduced in Outlook 2000 (SR2 and above), and installed by default in Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003. These new features help guard against most viruses that are spread by email attachments, as well as protect users from worm viruses that replicate through Outlook. However, these additional security features can be somewhat annoying, especially if you’re using third–party software that sends email using Outlook or that makes use of your Outlook Address Book.
