Outlook pop-up annoyance ---

It seems to be related to ActiveSync

Microsoft is making me mad. Recently I updated my office suite with all the latest patches. Now I get the error below:

A program is trying to access email addresses you have stored in outlook. Do you want to allow this?

One time with a "remember answer" option would be ok, but the only options are to allow for 1, 2, 5,or 10 minutes.

I've noticed that if this little window is popped up and I get a new email, the email doesn't show up on my PDA until after I approve the box. That leads me to believe 1 of 2 things...

1. Outlook stops EVERYthing while waiting for an answer
2. Microsoft programmers forgot to allow their own ActiveSync program through their silly warning.

I checked for viri and spyware... nothing. I tried a program called clickyes and all that does is lock up my machine when the screensaver comes on and it has to answer the dialogue box. AND, using that program, Outlook will pop up on top of anything else because of the box. I'll be typing along in a proposal or something and then BAM I'm getting error dings from my computer because I'm now entering keystrokes into outlook, not word where I JUST was!

Anyway.. PLEASE PLEASE help me get rid of this annoyance! It happens 6 times an hour in my 10 hour day... I have to answer this stupid box SIXTY times a day! AHHHH!

<sidenote> I'm copying this message and sending it to microsoft too! </sidenote>
