  • Hello Hermant,

    Sure. This is a common scenario when an external application (or badly written Outlook add-in, VBA, or form code) accesses a blocked property or method related to addresses, Outlook displays a security prompt.

    The most widely used scenarios are:

    1. To avoid such security prompts you may use a low level code (Extended MAPI) or any other wrappers like Redemption.

    2. Also you can use a commercial components (Outlok Security Manager) for suppressing warnings. In that case you can continue using your code without any wrappers or low-level code. 

    You can read more about Outlook security warnings and other possible solutions on the Outlook "Object Model Guard" Security Issues for Developers page.
