Hey indyng!

  You may have noticed that this "Security Feature" also requires the checking of a check box AND that the buttons that normally might respond to a press of the "Y" key, DO NOT.  Making it doubly difficult to automate this thru VBA.

  You have a couple choices:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;238114&Product=vba
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;209948&Product=vba

  You could also snag a third party SMTP engine that will provide the functionality without the security nightmare.

  I continue looking for a good one,.. I have tested several.  Most are rather limp/lame.  Still looking though...

regards
Jack

Download ExpressClickYes from here:

Bear in mind it will click yes to any request; justified or not, so switch it off when not in use.

Indy (and the rest of you),

we know you, so no reason to suspect you of foul play. But your question is actually against the rules on EE, - if we help you, then other - less considerate - persons, may find the answer and use it for malicious purposes.

There are several ways to avoid conflict with Outlook Security, - I know at least two:

1. Sign your code, and have it registered with the client
2. Use CDO instead of using SendObject or the Outlook-Object

Regards,
Sven

Thnx Jack,

I always like to be confirmed in the few right decisions I've made (CDO) ;-)

Hi indyng,

Is there an Exchange mail server anywhere in this picture?
If so I have a solution that establishes a VALID MAPI LOGON to your exchange server using cdoex.
The current warnings are raised because there is no valid logon.
This security is only going to get tighter with each new security update released by microsoft, and so it should.
There are numerous articles around showing how to get rid of the warning, but all involve seriously reducing your security levels leaving you exposed to malicious spam spawners.

I had the same problem.  I found a program called Redemption that solved it.  You can find it here: http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/

I saw the earlier post and hope this isn't in violation of any terms and conditions.  I had a real need for this as I had many reports that were automaticaly sent via email using sendobject, and it broke after I upgraded to Office XP.  I suspect there are may others who have the same delimma.  This program works great!
