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

This only happened when I install the new Office XP
service pack 3 update, is there anywhere when I can
change this setting.

Outlook 2002 SP3 adds additional properties to the list of those that are
affected by the security features. As a result, one of your add-ins needs
updated to the latest version - antispam add-ins are a common cause
although others are affected by the changes as well. Many add-ins were
updated following the release of Outlook 2003 and should work with SP3, if
not you'll need to contact the vendor for a newer version. has a list of
applications known to trigger the warning.

To learn how to program around the new properties (which is needed for the
macros to work with OL2003 too) see

IHateSpam released an update by 6PM Thursday - look for links on their
support page. Cloudmark is working on an update - Norton will have an update
available soon too. Newsgator has an update ready....

It's a known issue with SP3 -- security has been updated to more closely
match the security in Outlook 2003. You may be able to get around the
problem by either disabling Word as your e-mail editor or updating some of
your add-ins, especially virus scanners and spam filters (many of the major
manufacturers have already released compatible updates). See the following
