|Microsoft Office Outlook® 2003
When programs like Microsoft ActiveSync® or Palm Desktop attempt to access your contact information so that you can synchronize your personal digital assistant (PDA), you are notified that "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook." You get this message because the Outlook Address Book is guarded programmatically for security reasons. This is to prevent viruses from taking over your address book without your permission and spreading themselves using e-mail addresses in your Contacts folder.
In general, you cannot prevent this caution from appearing. You should not get this message if your synchronization software is a trusted add-in that can properly identify itself to Outlook as a safe program. Check with your synchronization software vendor.
- If you did not click a command or start a program that is expected to interact with the Outlook Address Book information, or if you are just not sure, click No.
- If you clicked a command or started a program that is expected to interact with the Outlook Address Book information, select the Allow access for check box, and then click the amount of time that you grant access for.
