By: standss , Apr 11th, 2012

Did you know that there is a built-in feature in Outlook that disables addins automatically?

Have you come across a time when you open Outlook in the morning only to find that your favourite outlook addin is missing from the toolbar/ribbon?

There is no need to panic, this post shows you simple steps you can follow to enable the disabled addins.

The steps will differ slightly based on the version of Outlook you are using:

In Outlook 2003

  • Open Outlook
  • Click Help on the menu bar >About Microsoft Outlook
  • Click the Disabled Items button
  • Select the file related to the addin
  • Click Enable
  • Restart Outlook

In Outlook 2007:

  • Open Outlook
  • Click Help on the menu bar >Disabled items…
  • Select the file related to the addin
  • Click Enable
  • Restart Outlook

In Outlook 2010

  • Open Outlook
  • Click the File tab >Options
  • Click Addins from the right panel
  • From the Manage: drop-down list, select Disabled items and click the Go button
  • Select the file related to the addin
  • Click Enable
  • Restart Outlook

This should now enable the disabled addin.

Hope you will not panic the next time an addin is disabled, enabling it will only take you a few clicks.
