Emails sent through Exchange/Outlook slowed and require click

    Hi
    I have an Access 2003 database that we use once a year to send individual
    emails to all our volunteers (appx 1500) so they can verify their information
    and hours they've volunteered. The access database uses the user's outlook.
    This works fine when I test it from home because I'm not on Exchange at home,
    but when we run it from the office, and through Exchange, Exchange (via
    Outlook) adds a seven-second wait and the user has to click for each email
    sent. This is on top of the Outlook warning about automated email, giving
    her 10 minutes she can send per set. I can live with that Outlook warning
    (although it would be wonderful to rid us of that as well), but the 7 second
    wait and click per email is unacceptable. I have searched a lot and can't
    find the answer - I'm probably using the wrong key words. Finally have to
    post a question. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.

    See the Outlook specific links at the Access Email FAQ at my website.
