Click on Home from the left "home" screen in OASIS.
Next, go to File-->Email Preferences.
You should be on the General tab. Make sure that Use Microsoft Outlook is checked and click on Ok.
After a couple of seconds, you will receive another pop-up. Simply click on Ok. This should supress the Outlook pop-ups.

Here is a clip from the Microsoft's Office page, Resolution Section:
Resolve this security warning
- If you did not expect a program to access Outlook, or if you are not sure whether the program attempting to access Outlook is trustworthy, click Deny.
If you clicked a command or started a program that you know is supposed to access Outlook data or send e-mail messages using Outlook, and you consider the program to be trustworthy, do one of the following:
- Click Allow.
If you are prompted to allow access to recipient information, select the Allow access for check box, click the amount of time that you want to grant access for, and then click Allow.
Note You should pick the least amount of time necessary for the other program to access your Outlook data. If the program needs additional time, the security warning will appear again.
Prevent this security warning from appearing again
Under certain conditions, installing an antivirus program and keeping it updated regularly might prevent this security warning from appearing again. The conditions are as follows:
- Your antivirus software must be compatible with Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2). Check with your antivirus software vendor.
- Your antivirus software must be updated regularly. Most antivirus programs enable you to get automatic updates when you are online. Check with your antivirus software vendor.
Your antivirus software is configured to share its update status with other applications. Typically, antivirus programs share their update status with other applications by default. To check the update status setting, look in the preferences or options for your antivirus program, or check with your antivirus software vendor.
- Office Outlook 2007 relies on the Windows Security Center to check for the presence of the antivirus program and update its status.
- If your antivirus software subscription expires or has been inactive, you might get the security warning again when a program attempts to access Outlook.
View security settings in the Trust Center
The Programmatic Access security settings in the Trust Center provide the following options:
- Warn me about suspicious activity when my antivirus software is inactive or out-of-date (recommended) This is the default setting in Office Outlook 2007. Suspicious activity refers to an untrusted program attempting to access Outlook.
- Always warn me about suspicious activity This is the most secure setting and you will always be prompted to make a trust decision when a program attempts to access Outlook.
- Never warn me about suspicious activity (not recommended) This is the least secure setting.
To view these settings, do the following:
- On the Tools menu, click Trust Center.
- Click Programmatic Access.
- If your computer is managed by a Microsoft Exchange administrator or a Microsoft Windows Active Directory Domain Services administrator in your organization, and the administrator changes the default setting and prevents users from making changes, the option to customize the Programmatic Access security settings will be disabled.
- If your computer is not managed by an Exchange administrator or a Microsoft Windows Active Directory Domain Services administrator, and you are the Windows administrator of your computer, you can change the Programmatic Access security settings. However, this is not recommended. "
