protected mode Win 8.1 MSIE 11


Extraordinary Member
I keep getting a reminder that protected mode is on and to click to disable it if I want. it pops up in my and some other sites.
I can see in internet options under advanced where I can uncheck it but the increase risk is a concern. It also
appears under MSIE 11 'security' both internet and restricted.
is this a glitch with MS where it should allow its own mail program to accept it?
I can see other sites but not a MS program.
I don't know if I should disable it or not?
Thank you
P.S. I thought it important to tell you that msgsc.dll wants to open is part of the message.but seems not to be trusted by MS protected mode. How do I reconcile themsafely?
