"One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed"

User recently got some outside email that produced a pop-up window with
title bar "Web browser" and message
One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either:
1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on
this page, or
2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls.
As a result, the page might not display correctly.

Of course we have all seen this elsewhere before, but I don't think I've
ever seen it in the GW client (and this same message produces the pop-up
on multiple machines).

All that is necessary is a way to shut this alert off, but I'd also be
interested to know what kind of stuff people are putting into their
email that would produce this.

I think what you are after is:

Tools, Options, Environment, Default Actions tab - set "HTML external
images or scripts" to "Never show warning".

I just assume it is something wacky that Outlook is doing, but I've
never had the time to confirm.

The word, but not the software. 🙂
