User gets the following error when sending attachments in Outllook.

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 an you should choose "No"

already did a virus scan?
also may want to check the add-ins - (In Outlook click Tools > Options~ > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager) - I've seen third-party applications do this.

Hello mutec1,

This is a new security feature of Outlook.  You cannot disable it.  You can auto step through it with
1) Express ClickYes
http://www.contextmagic.com/express-clickyes/
There is a free version and a Pro version for ~$30 with more features.

2) MAPILab Advanced Outlook Security
http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/security/

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.

Hope this helps!
