If a form accesses data from a Web site outside its own domain, you might receive security messages when you open the form. If you are certain that the form is accessing data from a trusted source, you can prevent the messages from appearing by adding the site to your Trusted sites zone in Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Note The Trusted sites zone specifies security settings for sites that you trust—sites that you can download or run files from without worrying about damage to your computer or data. The default security level for the Trusted sites zone is Low. Therefore, Internet Explorer allows all cookies from Web sites in this zone to be saved to your computer and read by the Web site that created them. In addition, depending on the security level of the form, Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 allows some forms to access data from trusted sites without displaying a security message.
- In InfoPath, click Options on the Tools menu.
- On the General tab in the Options dialog box, click Internet Options.
- In the Internet Properties dialog box, click the Security tab.
- In the Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings list, click Trusted sites.
- Click Sites.
- In the Add this Web site to the zone box in the Trusted sites dialog box, type the address of the Web site that you want to add, and then click Add.
Note If the Web site address does not start with https://, clear the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone check box. This stops InfoPath and Internet Explorer from verifying that the server for each Web site in the zone is secure before connecting to it.
