Terminology

In the online Outlook Security Manager Guide, elsewhere on this website, and in all our text files we use the following terms.

  • Protected Outlook objects refer to Outlook objects (COM interfaces), their properties or methods that being called fire security pop-up warnings.
  • Protected CDO objects refer to CDO objects (interfaces), their properties or methods that being called fire security prompts.
  • Protected Simple MAPI calls refer to Simple MAPI functions that being called fire security popup prompts.
  • Outlook Security refers to Outlook mechanisms that prevent a developer from using Outlook objects, CDO objects or Simple MAPI functions programmatically. Microsoft started this feature with Outlook E-mail Security Update for Outlook 2000.

To aid you in using Outlook Security Manager, several examples were included in the installation package. All the examples can be found in the Demo Projects subfolder of the Outlook Security Manager folder.

Note. The on-line version of the Outlook Security Manager Developer's Guide contains the .NET Edition only. The full version of the Outlook Security Manager Developer's Guide is available for .NET, VCL and ActiveX Editions in the PDF format.
