Microsoft Outlook blocks code that attempts to access the SenderEmailAddress property for security reasons. If you run a third-party add-in, custom solution, or other program that uses the SenderEmailAddress property in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, you may receive the following warning:
A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this? If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you should choose "No".
The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example loops all items in a folder named Test in the Inbox and sets the yellow flag on items sent by 'email@example.com'. To run this example without errors, make sure the Test folder exists in the default Inbox folder and replace 'firstname.lastname@example.org' with a valid sender e-mail address in the Test folder.
