    Re: Outlook Prob (Outlook 2002)

    Hi Braddy,
    This is a feature of the 'new' Outlook Security Model which gets activated whenever another program tries to access certain features of Outlook. Do you have any add-ins installed or synchronisation software for a PDA? (if the latter, make sure you have the latest version as it should have been updated to cope with this)

    Re: Outlook Prob (Outlook 2002)

    As Rory mentioned, the message should only be shown if a program tries to access your mail box. Try to find out which program that is, and make sure you're not infected with some kind of malware that sends mail from your PC.

    There is a free utility that can suppress the message: ClickYes.; I use it because I send e-mails from other applications such as Word and Access. Other options are mentioned in <post#=390751>post 390751</post#>.

    If your organisation is running Microsoft Exchange Server then take a look at Administration for the Microsoft Outlook E-mail Security Update

    Does this only happen when you run the macro? If so, you will need something like the ClickYes program that Hans mentioned (or you can turn the macro into a COM add-in and get your server administrator to trust the add-in using the administrative security template; or download the Redemption dll and rewrite the macro, if possible). If it happens at other times, then you should definitely do a sweep for viruses/malware!

    Hi Hans

    Thanks for the temporary fix, it appears I am the only one updated to SP3, I have advised them of the slipstick site as suggested.

    Thanks to all who replied to this post.

    Just as a footnote, it's not clear to me why saving an attachment should read or write any of the address fields in the message. There might be some unnecessary code in your macro triggering the warning that could be removed or commented out withough a loss of functionality.

    Re: Outlook Prob (Outlook 2002)

    Hi Jefferson

    This is the macro:
    Sub GetAttachments()
    On Error GoTo GetAttachments_err
    Dim ns As NameSpace
    Dim Inbox As MAPIFolder
    Dim Item As Object
    Dim Atmt As Attachment
    Dim FileName As String
    Dim i As Integer

    Set ns = GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set Inbox = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
    i = 0
    If Inbox.Items.Count = 0 Then
    MsgBox "There are no messages in the Inbox.", vbInformation, _
    "Nothing Found"
    Exit Sub
    End If
    For Each Item In Inbox.Items
    For Each Atmt In Item.Attachments
    FileName = "C:Email Attachments" & Atmt.FileName
    Atmt.SaveAsFile FileName
    i = i + 1
    Next Atmt
    Next Item
    If i > 0 Then
    MsgBox "I found " & i & " attached files." _
    & vbCrLf & "I have saved them into the C:Email Attachments folder." _
    & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "Have a nice day.", vbInformation, "Finished!"
    Else
    MsgBox "I didn't find any attached files in your mail.", vbInformation, _
    "Finished!"
    End If
    GetAttachments_exit:
    Set Atmt = Nothing
    Set Item = Nothing
    Set ns = Nothing
    Exit Sub
    GetAttachments_err:
    MsgBox "An unexpected error has occurred." _
    & vbCrLf & "Please note and report the following information." _
    & vbCrLf & "Macro Name: GetAttachments" _
    & vbCrLf & "Error Number: " & Err.Number _
    & vbCrLf & "Error Description: " & Err.Description _
    , vbCritical, "Error!"
    Resume GetAttachments_exit
    Exit Sub

    End Sub

    Re: Outlook Prob (Outlook 2002)

    I think the warning you get is not quite accurate; instead of mentioning "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses...", it should read "A program is trying to access Outlook items...".

    The warning is to be expected if you run code like that; so you'll need one of the workarounds referred to higher up in this thread.

    Thanks again
