You are using the Exclaimer Mail Archiver Outlook Add-In on a computer with Outlook 2013 that has no internet connection. You observe that the Outlook Add-In takes several seconds longer to load and you may see the following dialog from Microsoft Outlook:
ReasonThe Exclaimer Mail Archiver Outlook Add-In is digitally signed by Exclaimer to verify its authenticity. This is a requirement for all Add-Ins used with Microsoft Outlook and helps protect users against viruses and unsafe Add-Ins. To verify that the certificate is authentic, your computer needs to verify that the certificate has not been revoked.
ResolutionAs this behaviour is controlled by Microsoft Outlook 2013, we cannot control this delay.
Here's a workaround to prevent the error dialog being presented:
If possible, temporarily connect the computer to the Internet. This will automatically download the list of revoked certificates from Microsoft. Upon completion, the following event will be recorded in the Windows Application Event Log:
|Detail||Successful auto update of disallowed certificate list with effective date: Date|
- Add the following Registry Key which adds the same behaviour as if the user had selected Always enable this add-in from the dialog.
Warning: Windows Registry modifications should always be approached with extreme care - serious problems can occur if you modify the Windows registry incorrectly!
We strongly advise you to back up the Windows registry before any modifications are made - in doing so you will have the option to restore the backup if a problem occurs.
For more information, see How to back up and restore the registry in Windows.
