I've been following steps 1 to 7 on this website on how to write a VBA macro for Outlook 2013. That all went swimingly except when it comes to running the Rule Wizard I do not have the "Run a script" option as shown in Step 8.


I did some further googling and found this suggestion/fix:


Outlook 2013
DWORD: EnableUnsafeClientMailRules
Value: 1


I'm hestitant to play in the regiserty... but anyhow I went ahead. My problem is that I actually don't have a DWORD called "EnableUnsafeClientMailRules".


Question 1:

IS this really the only fix I can use, do I have to edit the registry?


Question 2:

If yes, then do I have to go and create the DWORD "EnableUnsafeClientMailRules" if I do not have it


Thanks, Michelle
