signing data with your private key - message

Hello,
I started to digitally sign my Outlook messages, but every time I send a message, this pop up appears. U can find it attached.

What can I do to make it NOT appear? Thanks.

I have done a number of things over the years BUT I haven't had the message in a long time and I suspect the product that does it for me is MAPILab Advanced Outlook Security.

http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/security/

A free COM add-in for Outlook.  I use it at work, I like it and there is no licensing req't.

Basically each time a security event is detected the library lets you accept all future events of the type occur without further user interaction.

I installed it, restarted outlook, appeared the messages showing me for which APIs has been installed, I tried to send a mail and the same message appeared :(

oh, now I tries some other times and that message is no more appearing.

Is it possible to chose which message to continue showing and which message to not show anymore?

I am afraid I will receive one day a security message that I NEED to read, but this add-in will avoid this message to appear...

You may already understand but:

1. The first time you do something the message appears and you need to select 'always do this action.
2. To see it work, (hopefully) you need to do it again ... to anyone.

I don't know that the requested selectivity is available, the functionality is to prevent the message from appearing ... I cannot say that it's impossible with this add-in but I am now aware of how to do it short of some other detection method using rules or in VBA.

Oops ... "now aware " should read "not aware ".

the fact is that nothing appears at all from this add-in

You can delete an action or change it setting from teh mapilab menu in programs and right clicking actions.

My latter response was in regard to the inquiry into "Is it possible to chose which message to continue showing and which message to not show anymore?"  And in this regard I don't know the answer.

The action list is blank... should be something there?

Chris BottomleyCommented:
Can't be sure but I would think that at least one of the action/Process/Outlook Modules lists would have something in them

yes, Process/Outlook have many data inside, but the action is empty

Chris BottomleyCommented:
Hmmm, a quick shows the alter action applies only to the action list - where I have about 30 entries ...

Another aspect I can't answer for then! ... but then from my perspective it's about removing the security validation so it works fine at that level.

well... if I remove the digital signature the message doesn't appear anymore, but I enabled the signature because I want it to be enabled

As I understood matters you were getting the warning message but once you installed mapilab and ran a first message through it the warning message was suppressed.

What is the problem as you see it?

hm, sorry, maybe I didn't explain well and I made some confusion.

I receive this message from when I installed the digital signature. I am receiving the message when I am starting to send the email.

The message appears only for the first time I send a mail after Outlook restart, then for the next email doesn't appear, of course until next Outlook restart.

I didn't understand how it worked before installing the add-in. Probably the same - for the first email send after starting Otulook, or whether it was appearing always. Not sure about that, but I am sure that it appears for the first email.

If it is possible to avoid clicking on OK to this message would be wonderful, otherwise "it's just 1 click".

Thanks

As I stated at the start I have added and fiddled with a lot of code but I believe mapilab was the 'fix'.  If each time you restart outlook you have to reauthorise on the first email then I am mistaken since once approved to repeat this action it should not be required ever again.

I'm not sure what application you need to do it then, sorry.
