Microsoft Office Outlook
Outlook experienced a serious problem with the ‘redemption helper outlook extension’ add-in. If you have seen this message multiple times, you should disable this add-in and check to see if an update is available. Do you want to disable this add-in?
[Yes]   [No]

ANSWER
———
The Redemption Helper Outlook Extension is a COM library that allows bypassing of Outlook Security setting such as sending email on your behalf, export messages, create, access and manipulate MAPI profiles, manage junkmail settings, etc… 

The plug-in is installed many times by third party software you use, such as other Outlook Plug-Ins, address book managers, Office add-ons, etc. 

If it is causing errors, or you are sure you no longer use the features of the plug-in, you may simply disable the add-in by following the steps listed here:
