    While that is not the message I was thinking of I think that two can only be hidden using a third-party add-in. Have a look at Redemption (see post #2 for link) that might do what you need.

    Thanks for the solution, but is there any other way that can solve my problem?
    can we have some outlook properties or code that can check or close the popup programatically? I don't want to use any third party add-in.

    There might be a way if you reference Microsoft Outlook from within your program.
    when you quote a post could you please do it via the "Reply With Quote" button or if it multiple post click the "''+" button then "Reply With Quote" button.

    I don't want to use any third party add-in.
    you may be able to use API from your vb program to find the window and close, findwindow, findwindowex and sendmessage
    no code will run in outlook or outlook object while dialog is open

    best to find what fires the error dialog and prevent its occurrence
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    come back and mark your original post as resolved if your problem is fixed

    Hi Nightwalker83,

    I found the solution.what I did, I programatically kill that pop up and then open my outlook window. below is my code:

    Public Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
    Public Declare Function PostMessage Lib "user32" Alias "PostMessageA" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long

    Public Const WM_CLOSE = &H10

    Public Sub Kill_Program(ProgramName As String)
    Dim WinWnd As Long
    'Stop
    WinWnd = FindWindow(vbNullString, ProgramName)

    If WinWnd <> 0 Then
    MsgBox "Outlook E-mail Properties Popup will be closed."
    PostMessage WinWnd, WM_CLOSE, 0&, 0&
    ' Else
    ' ' do nothing or
    ' MsgBox "No Popup of name " & ProgramName & " exists."
    End If
    End Sub
