I keep getting this message:

...and for the life of me I cannot figure out what program might be trying to access my email address information - any ideas for getting rid of this message or tracking down the offending program?

Do you have anti-virus software? run a complete scan. – wizlog Jul 27 '11 at 16:18
If you have any macros running they could potentially cause this depending on what they are doing. – EBGreen Jul 27 '11 at 16:22
Do you have a smartphone, or similar device, particularly in a cradle? Is there anything in your application event log? – KCotreau Jul 27 '11 at 16:30

Most probably there is a COM add-in of a product you installed, which can be disabled through Outlook Security Settings template.

Try to run Outlook in safe mode and see if it still happens - to do so type in the Run window outlook.exe /safe (or press CTRL button on your keyboard when clicking the Outlook shortcut)

To disable COM add-ins go to File | Options | Add-ins and click on the Go... button

Here, try to disable these add-ins one by one and see who is the one that is actually causing the problem.
