Why am I getting the message "Xink.app want access to control Microsoft.Outlook.app" on Mojave?

You may get the message shown below when updating signatures for Microsoft Outlook on macOS Mojave.  This is Mojave's stricter security policy that is preventing Xink from setting the Outlook signatures.

You need to press "OK" to allow Xink to set the signatures for your MS Outlook.
