DOCSOpen Outlook Integration


One of many idiotic problems with this buggy integration -
SD010943

DOCS Open - Outlook Integration - Attaching Documents to Outlook XP Plain Text Format E-mail Messages

In DOCS Open 3.9.5, using Outlook Integration Build 20, and in DOCS Open 3.9.6, using Microsoft Outlook XP, when you attempt to attach a document to an e-mail message in Plain Text format, instead of attaching the document, the View menu in Outlook expands and no document is attached.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Start DOCS Open.
2. Start Microsoft Outlook XP.
3. Open an existing e-mail message in Plain Text format.
4. Click the Reply or Forward button.
5. Select Insert>From DOCS Open (or click the toolbar button); a Quick Retrieve window appears.
6. Select a document and click OK; the Insert Type window appears.
7. Click Attach.
8. Instead of attaching the document, the View menu in Outlook expands, and no document is attached.

If you then open an e-mail message in HTML or Rich Text format and repeat the steps to reproduce as listed above, then two documents are attached (the document previously selected during the Plain Text e-mail and the current attachment). Once a document is successfully attached to an e-mail message, it is then possible to attach documents to Plain Text format e-mail messages.
Resolution:
This issue is resolved in DOCS Open 3.9.6 Outlook Integration Patch 1 (Build 24)

Windows::Registry::Internet Explorer::Security Settings



From: JSI


5130 » How can I manage Internet Explorer Security Zones via the registry?

The security zone settings for Internet Explorer are located at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings


AND


HKEY_Local_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings


The values that are located in both keys are additive. If a Web site is added to both keys, only the HKCU sites can be seen in the GUI, but both settings are enforced.

If you only want machine based settings to be enforced, copy and paste the following to a HKLM_Only.reg file and Merge it with the computers registry:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"Security_HKLM_only"=dword:00000001


The sub-keys of the Internet Settings key, for both HKLM and HKCU paths, are:

TemplatePolicies
ZoneMap
Zones

The Zones sub-key contains a sub-key for each zone defined. The defaults are:

Key Meaning
0 My Computer, NOT available in the Zone box of the Security tab.
1 Local Intranet Zone.
2 Trusted sites Zone.
3 Internet Zone.
4 Restricted Sites Zone


These sub-keys contain the following Value Names:

Value Name Data Type Meaning
Description REG_SZ Displayed when you select a Zone in the Zone box of the GUI.
DisplayName REG_SZ Displayed when you select a Zone in the Zone box of the GUI.
Icon REG_SZ The icon that is displayed.
CurrentLevel REG_DWORD The current Security setting.
MinLevel REG_DWORD The lowest Security level allowed before a warning is issued.
RecommendedLevel REG_DWORD The recommended Security level.
Flags REG_DWORD Controls the users ability to modify the Security settings.


The data values for the CurrentLevel, MinLevel, and RecommendedLevel Value Names are:

Data value Meaning
0x00010000 Low Security.
0x00011000 Medium Security.
0x00012000 High Security.


The data values for the Flags value Name are additive:

Data value Meaning
1 Allow changes to custom settings.
2 Allow users to add Web sites to this zone.
4 Require HTTPS Web sites.
8 Include Web sites that bypass the proxy server.
16 Include Web sites not listed in other zones.
32 Do NOT show security zone in Internet Properties.
64 Show the Requires Server Verification dialog.
128 UNCs are treated as Intranet connections.


NOTE: The My Computer zone does NOT contain the CurrentLevel, MinLevel, and RecommendedLevel Value Names.

The following Value Names are all REG_DWORD data types. Their data values are:

Data value Meaning
0 This action is allowed.
1 This action will generate a prompt.
3 This action is prohibited.

The TemplatePolicies sub-key of the Internet Settings key has the default security zones settings. The Low, Medium, and High sub-keys contains Value Names that represents the Zones default values.

The ZoneMap sub-key of the Internet Settings key has the following sub-keys:

Domains - Contains domains and protocols that have been added. Each added domain is a sub-key of Domains. Sub-domains are sub-keys of the the domain that they belong to. Each domain has a protocol Value Name (ftp, http, https, etc.) whose data value is the numerical value of the security zone (0x00012000 is High Security) to which it is added.

The ProtocolDefaults sub-key of the Internet Settings key defines the default security zone for a given protocol, by adding a Value Name (file, ftp, http, https, etc.), with NO colons (:) or slashes (/). These REG_DWORD data types the following possible data values:

Key Meaning
0 My Computer, NOT available in the Zone box of the Security tab.
1 Local Intranet Zone.
2 Trusted sites Zone.
3 Internet Zone.
4 Restricted Sites Zone


The Ranges sub-key of the Internet Settings key contain arbitrary sub-keys that define the ranges of the TCP/IP address. The :Ranges Value Name of these arbitrary sub-keys, a REG_SZ data type, contains the range affected (192.168.0.*). A * Value Name, a REG_DWORD data type, contains the security zone that the range falls within (0x1 is Local Intranet).
