I cannot open .oft on desktop  as i was able before upgrading to office 2007 is their a way to fix this without getting the message. Outlook has blocked access to this form template file. If you know and trust the person who created the form. on the File menu, point to new Click Choose Form and then in the look Ir list, Click User Template in File Systerr.

Hello DanielHerrera,

Bypass Outlook Security Warning:

1) Express ClickYes
http://www.contextmagic.com/express-clickyes/
There is a free version and a Pro version for ~$30 with more features.  I've used the pro version.
It works as advertised.  I'm not using it currently.  I'm using the MAPILab product instead.

2) MAPILab Advanced Outlook Security
http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/security/
A free COM add-in for Outlook.  I am using it now and I like it

3) Redemption
http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/
A DLL you can use in your code to disable the warnings.  Free download, but you must pay a
license to distribute.  I've used it and like it.

Hope this helps!

Daniel, if you created the form in Outlook 2003 or earlier version and imported to Outlook 2007, you will not to recreate the form in Outlook 2007.
