Unspecified Error: -2147467259 Using OL2000 VBA
Can't use OutlookSecurityManager in OL2000 macro

In Outlook I've written a macro that's triggered by the ItemAdd event of my Inbox. The macro looks in a Contacts subfolder for all of the contacts and forwards the message to them, after tweaking the subject and adding a signature line. Using that, I can have a workstation running as a cheap list serve. The code works great, except that I get the security warnings, so it can't run unless someone sits at the computer and approves the security warnings.

So I bought Outlook Security Manager (osm) and have tried my best to figure out the documentation. Before the "guts" of my macro I put the following:

----------------------------------
Dim osm As OutlookSecurityManager
On Error GoTo PROC_ERR

'Turn off Outlook Security.
Set osm = New OutlookSecurityManager
osm.DisableSMAPIWarnings = True
osm.DisableOOMWarnings = True
osm.DisableCDOWarnings = True
----------------------------------

At the end of the macro I set all the Disable properties to False.

When the macro runs, I get -2147467259: Unspecified Error. I've tried the ConnectTo method but get -2147024809: The parameter is incorrect. Here's the code I'm trying to use for that:

----------------------------------
Dim app As Object
Dim osm As OutlookSecurityManager
On Error GoTo PROC_ERR

Set app = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

'Turn off Outlook Security.
Set osm = New OutlookSecurityManager
osm.ConnectTo app
-----------------------------------

I'm using Version 1.3 of osm. I put the redistributable files in the Common Files directory, ran regsvr32, and added a reference to osmax.ocx. My version of Outlook is 2000 SP-3 (9.0.0.6627)--Internet Mail Only.

Hi Kenneth,

You don't need to disable ALL types of warnings. Try to disable Outlook Object Model warnings (the DisableOOMWarnings property) only.
