moderated Outlook and Stopping Security Messages


Mike B.
 

Hi All,
 
A friend is wanting to know how he can stop the following.
From: Vince
Have you ever seen the following two messages when arrowing through e-mails?

1.

"To help protect your privacy, Outlook prevented automatic downloads of some pictures in this message."

2.

"If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser.  Click here to download pictures."

 

I’m running JAWS Version 2021.2012.48, running Windows

Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041 and Outlook version 15—according to the Outlook property.

 

These messages seem to pop up every other message when I arrow up.  It is really annoying!

If you’ve seen them, is there a way to stop them from popping up?

All help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I’m wondering that too. I get them every other email sometimes

I looked it up using Google and it says you can change it in the trust center. I just don’t know how to get to the trust center.

Howdy All,
 
Replied to the wrong thread the first time.  Okay I just called my friend and had him do the steps below.  These steps will definitely work.
 
1. To get to the Trust Center, open Word and press, Alt + T, then press the letter, O, now down arrow to, Trust Center.
 
2. Tab to, Trusst Center settings... button and press the spacebar to open.
 
3. Down arrow to, Protected view, now tab through these options unchecking each 1 if they're checked or the ones you feel comfortable in unchecking.  Personally I unchecked all of them, and when you get to, Okay, press enter to close / save and Alt + F4 to close Word.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi, Bill and Mike.

 

Isn’t the drawback with both methods that pictures will be downloaded, thus causing possible delays in downloads and message-opening time? so you might lose unwanted verbiage but gain clunkier message processing?

Hi, Adrian. Yes, I discussed this very point with Mike. Then, too, there are those who don't want to download all the pictures, because they have slow Internet, and can experience time outs.

Bill,

 

Both Mike and you post exceptionally helpful advice. I just wonder if a down side like this might be mentioned when a method that solves the problem presented might create a new one. This is what I was getting at. I didn’t notice any discussion between Mike and you on the list, but I may not have read the thread all the way through.

Hi, Adrian. Often I have mentioned the so-called "down side" for some actions that users wish to perform on their systems, both on group distribution lists, and on the telephone with them while assisting them, and their reaction is usually, "If I don't like the behavior that this change introduced, I'll just go back, and reverse the operations I performed, and set my system back to the way it was before I made the changes."

 

I will usually mention these "down side" behaviors while assisting individuals privately. Mainly, though, I must assume that computer users here are technically savvy enough to know how they want their systems to perform, and if they ask me, I will also help them correct any changes made, both on the list and privately.

A big, Amen!, to that.

My base assumption, unless someone declares themselves to be a neophyte, is that anyone who's sophisticated enough to have subscribed to a group such as this one has "been around the block" more than enough times to have considered what it is that might be the side-effects of anything they might try, and will be able to reverse steps if they need to.

There is no reason to believe otherwise.

Hi, Bill.

 

I have no doubt that you will help people in any way you can. It comes through in all your messages.

 

I do question your assumption that everyone here is tech savvy enough to identify the risks involved in a given suggestion. For many of us, JAWS is a means to an end, not a study in itself. In the fields where I have a bit more expertise than I do with tech, where I’m essentially an amateur, we always identify any potential down side when giving advice.

 

I’m sure I’m one of many listers who feel indebted to you for your invaluable contributions, which you always provide with the greatest civility and without a trace of arrogance. I make my point this last time just to question the assumption.

 

Adrian

Hi, Adrian. Often I have mentioned the so-called "down side" for some actions that users wish to perform on their systems, both on group distribution lists, and on the telephone with them while assisting them, and their reaction is usually, "If I don't like the behavior that this change introduced, I'll just go back, and reverse the operations I performed, and set my system back to the way it was before I made the changes."

 

I will usually mention these "down side" behaviors while assisting individuals privately. Mainly, though, I must assume that computer users here are technically savvy enough to know how they want their systems to perform, and if they ask me, I will also help them correct any changes made, both on the list and privately.

Bill,

 

Both Mike and you post exceptionally helpful advice. I just wonder if a down side like this might be mentioned when a method that solves the problem presented might create a new one. This is what I was getting at. I didn’t notice any discussion between Mike and you on the list, but I may not have read the thread all the way through.

Hi, Adrian. Yes, I discussed this very point with Mike. Then, too, there are those who don't want to download all the pictures, because they have slow Internet, and can experience time outs.

Hi, Bill and Mike.

 

Isn’t the drawback with both methods that pictures will be downloaded, thus causing possible delays in downloads and message-opening time? so you might lose unwanted verbiage but gain clunkier message processing?

And if what Mike says doesn't stop the security messages, try the following,

 

1. Open Outlook.

2. Press ALT plus F, followed by T for Options.

3. Arrow down to Trust Center, TAB to the Trust Center Settings button, and press ENTER.

4. Arrow down to Automatic Download, and TAB through the settings.

5. Look for,

Don’t download pictures automatically in standard HTML e-mail messages or RSS items.

Make sure it is unchecked.

6. Look for,

Don’t download pictures in encrypted or signed HTML email messages

Make sure it is unchecked.

7. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.

Howdy All,

 

Replied to the wrong thread the first time.  Okay I just called my friend and had him do the steps below.  These steps will definitely work.

 

1. To get to the Trust Center, open Word and press, Alt + T, then press the letter, O, now down arrow to, Trust Center.

 

2. Tab to, Trusst Center settings... button and press the spacebar to open.

 

3. Down arrow to, Protected view, now tab through these options unchecking each 1 if they're checked or the ones you feel comfortable in unchecking.  Personally I unchecked all of them, and when you get to, Okay, press enter to close / save and Alt + F4 to close Word.

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I looked it up using Google and it says you can change it in the trust center. I just don’t know how to get to the trust center.

Hi All,

 

A friend is wanting to know how he can stop the following.

From: Vince

Have you ever seen the following two messages when arrowing through e-mails?

1.

"To help protect your privacy, Outlook prevented automatic downloads of some pictures in this message."

2.

"If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser.  Click here to download pictures."

 

I’m running JAWS Version 2021.2012.48, running Windows

Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041 and Outlook version 15—according to the Outlook property.

 

These messages seem to pop up every other message when I arrow up.  It is really annoying!

If you’ve seen them, is there a way to stop them from popping up?

 

V

 

All help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.

 


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.
