Started getting this error message " This outlook session contains macros" after installing a plug in from Business objects. I have set the macros security level to low but the error message would still pop up every time i click on new message or when i start outlook how can i get rid of this error message without having to uninstall the plug in.
Am using Microsoft Outlook 2003.

I'd recommend calling Business Objects tech support if you have maintenance with that product.  If not, let me know.  Their web site is also very informative.  I can take a look at their site later and see if this is a known issue.

One other thing you could do is while in Outlook on this pc, hit ALT + F11.  That brings up a window where macros and code is stored.  Check what's in there.  But, since this is an exec's pc, be careful.  

Of course, you wouldn't want to make changes unless it's clear what you're changing.  But, if there is code there, it might lead you in a direction.  

Also, you could check the typical Tools, Macros spot, too.  It might be related to the Live Office update, or maybe something else.  

Good luck.
