Email prompt for every automated message sent


D

Dale

We use Word's merge to email, and a 3rd party program to
send messages (by the 100's, to students, no spam involved)
out via Outlook. We've been doing this for years, then
Outlook 2002 comes along. I know using an Exchange server,
the security settings can be modified to eliminate the
prompt as each message is sent (the " A program is trying
to automatically send e-mail on your behalf. Do you want to
allow this? ... message). Well, we don't use an exchange
server and this is a mission critical application. Is there
any registry setting or anything else anyone knows of to
turn this off? Or should I just roll back my version...

Thank you.

The security dialogs that pop up when an application tries to access certain Outlook properties and methods are designed to inhibit the spread of viruses via Outlook; see http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/esecup.htm#autosec. If you are a standalone user, Outlook provides no way to suppress this behavior. However, you can use a free tool called Express ClickYes (http://www.express-soft.com/mailmate/clickyes.html) to click the security dialog buttons automatically. Beware that this means if a virus tries to send mail using Outlook or gain access to your address book, it will succeed.
