Hour 8. Email Security > Understanding Outlook's Security

Understanding Outlook's Security

One of Outlook's strengths is its programmability. Outlook supports VBA, enabling you to use procedures to automate many mundane tasks. When you need more than VBA provides, you can install COM add-ins to provide features that Microsoft didn't build into Outlook.

A Component Object Model (COM) add-in is an application that uses the host program's object model to access the host program's interface. COM add-ins add features missing from the program or improve on existing features.

Extended Reminders (www.slovaktech.com) is an example of a COM add-in that adds a feature that Outlook is missing—the ability to use reminders in any folder.

After a COM add-in is installed, it's listed in Tools, Options, Other, Advanced Options, COM Add-ins.
