Programmatic Access Security settings in Outlook 2007 is greyed out ?


  • Just in case, the link you refered is for Outlook 2010, so it use version 14.0 in the regitry path, have you changed it to 12.0 instead?

    If no, try this:



    DWORD Values = 2


    NOTE If your computer is managed by a Microsoft Exchange administrator or a Microsoft Windows Active Directory Domain Services administrator in your organization, and the administrator changes the default setting and prevents users from making changes, the option to customize the Programmatic Access security settings will be disabled (grayed out).
