    IE7 and Security Alert (7.0.5700.6)

    When I click live links in Outlook, I get the message shown below.

    How do I disable this? I've checked Security and Advanced settings and cannot seem to get 'er done.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 03-Sep-06 10:32. )</P>I occasionally have seen a similar dialog in IE when opening a site on the Trusted Sites list from a site in the Internet Zone. But I've never seen a similar dialog clicking any link in the Restricted Zone. Is Outlook already opening HTML mail in the restricted zone?

    Added: In case it wasn't obvious from the above question, Outlook should always be set to open HTML mail in the Restricted Sites zone. Safety First!!

    Added: I just noticed you are running IE7. Sorry, I don't know whether this is normal for IE7 or not.

    Yea, it's IE7, but a lot of what you say still applies I think.

    I have my Outlook to open all sites in the Internet Zone... I don't go to any sites from emil (senders) I don't recognize. All mail (like that) is filtered to Spam on receipt.

    So you will never ever view those messages? The difference between Internet and Restricted is that in most setups JavaScript/VBScript and ActiveX are allowed to run in the Internet zone, and NOT allowed to run in the Restricted zone. Because scripts and ActiveX controls run upon rendering to the screen, extraordinary things can be done to your system without you having to do anything except view the message.

    Well, for the most part, no, I won't.

    I see your point though. But then will I have to "unblock" any/all that come from or through trusted senders? IOW, is it the site or the sender that you are actually restricting?

    I can cope with free up some 4-500 senders, but every link?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 03-Sep-06 12:06. )</P>I'm running Outlook 2003 with IE6 (XP SP2), with HTML messages rendered in the Restricted Zone. There are times when someone will send a message with code to invoke a video-player plug-in (not attached, streamed from the web using an ActiveX control). However, they always provide a link to view the video at a web site, which is what I do. So there is nothing to "unblock." Perhaps IE7 works a bit differently.

    Note: the downloading of images is set independently from the security restrictions.

    Added: To address your question about what is being restricted, it is the types of content in the message body that will be activated or displayed. This includes content that is brought in from a web page through a <frame> or <iframe>.

    I suspect that what I should do is to take your advice and try it out...

    I'll let you know...

    Added comment:

    When I went through setting up IE7, it has a new "outlook" on security, where the default is now "Medium-High".

    I let this stay, only changing a couple of settings from "Disabled" to "Prompt" when I came across issues... You get a "notice" when you downgrade specific settings' securities as well.
