A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in



When composing a new e-mail in Outlook 2002. I get a warning dialog box that
says the above and below.

A program is trying to access e-mail address you have stored in outlook. Do
you want to allow this?


Then there is a check box for

Allow access for 1minute or whatever I choose.

I am using outlook not a third part email program or virus or spyware is
accessing it. This is happening when I compose a new email. How do I get rid
of this warning. I searched the KB and elsewhere. still can't find it. any
suggestions would be great as this is happening on a couple of my clients
computers and are driving me nuts trying to get rid of it.



These prompts are from the Outlook Email Security Updates contained in all
current versions of Outlook and in all Service Packs after SP1 for Outlook
2000. These updates add additional actions to the list of those that are
blocked from accessing the Outlook Address Book. Antivirus and antispam
add-ins are a common cause and others may be affected as well (for example,
Adobe Acrobat's Outlook addin called PDFMaker is a very common one). As a
result, one of the add-ins or programs you are using that access your
Outlook Address Book needs to be updated. Many add-ins were updated
following the release of Outlook 2003 and should work. If not you'll need to
contact the vendor for a newer version.

applications known to trigger the security prompt.
