    Security Patch and E-mail Merge (2000-SR2)

    The security patch allows access to Outlook in 10 minute increments with a separate warning for each message, which means sitting and approving each message. Very slow!

    Is there any kind of work around available? I've come up blank so far.

    no, unless you use exchange server and the admin changes it or if programming your own com addin there is a utility called redemption.

    Thanks for the response.

    What could be changed in Exchange, and would it stop the prompts altogether?

    TIA

    the admin needs to use the admin form (at the ORK website) and give permissions to the users (can be on a user or group basis, so low level users remain tight and high level users have full permissions)

    the form allows any or all of the security patch to be disabled - so yes, prompts could be stopped.

    This sounds like it would totally disable the service patch. Am I right?

    Another question: do you know whether this has been fixed in XP?

    it can be used to disable all or part of the patch from affecting all or some of the exchange users.

    has what been fixed? the security setting remain almost the same as in outlook 2000 and will remain in future versions.

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q262634>Q262634- Known Issues w/ Outlook e-mail Security Update for Outlook 2000</A> -- implies that some changes are being considered for the next version of Office:


    <hr>This is a limitation of the current design and improvements are being evaluated for the next version of Microsoft Office. <hr>

    The administrator does not want to make changes to the patch, so I'm in the middle by trying to help this user!
