You will then click on the check box next to Developer



Click "OK"

Click on "Trust Center"



Click on "Trust Center Settings"


Click on "Macro Settings"



Select "Notifications for all macros"

This will notify you every time you launch Outlook and will give you the choice of enabling or disabling macros for that Outlook session

You can "Enable all macros" but just be aware that the macros you use will always be active



Click "OK"
