Windows 7 Home Premium, Outlook 2007, Panda Antivirus. Programmatic Access options are greyed out when using a 3rd party invoicing program (BusinessVision) that uses Outlook to email invoices after they are created. We want to be warned that "a computer program is trying to access email addresses stored in Outlook" so that we can deny when appropriate.
Thank you for your assistance :p.

Make sure you are running Outlook in a user account which has administrator priveleges.

Thank you pip22.

I am the Administrator and I work on a stand alone computer.

We have tried two things which we had anticipated would trigger a warning message that "a program is trying to access email addresses stored in Outlook 2007". However, neither seem to work which leads us to believe we are not addressing the right problem. The two things are:

1) We have turned of our Antivirus. Outlook acknowledges that we do not have an antivirus (bottom of the Programmatic Access pane). We do not get a warning that "a third party program is trying to send an email" as expected. Our assumption is that "antivirus out of date" and "no antivirus" would be treated the same - apparently this is not true.

2) We have edited the registry as follows: HKey_Local_Machine>Software>Microsoft>Office>Outlook>REG_DWORD = 1 which is "always warn". We do not get a warning.

Any additional thoughts you have will be appreciated.

Thank you

Ron
