Why, when creating Outlook (2003) add-in's don't the security prompts pop up on the development machine. They only start appearing when you deploy it. Is there a way to force the security prompts to pop up during development so that you don't have to wait until the product is deployed to find out if your code will cause these prompts

Perhaps the other machine is set for Administrator-controlled security Did you check the security mode in Help | About Microsoft Outlook

Ah ha! So what you're saying is that if I develop as a non-Administrator I will see the security prompts

No, just the opposite. If the security mode (which you can see on the Help | About Microsoft Outlook dialog) is administrator-controlled, then the only add-ins that won't trigger security prompts are those that have been trusted with by the Exchange administrator with the tools that Microsoft provides. In Outlook 2007, such trust doesn't require an Exchange public folder, but can instead by controlled with GPO.
