Pain in the A$$

I am using a custom Access DBase to manage my contact information. I have a Query that I want to E-Mail to all of the contacts in the Qyery. I am using MS Word, and Mail Merging to the Query to send E-Mail via Outlook.

Since the last security update from MS, when an outside program tries to initiate Item.Send, it gives you a warning message and you must INDIVIDUALLY grant access to EACH E-Mail sent, then you must WAIT 5 seconds between confirmations! (A real problem since I am sending 900 E-Mails)

Does anyone know any GOOD workarounds, or better way to send this type of mass communication??

MS has no solution.     http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;192258

Well, I work in an Exchange environment, so I deploy the Security & Administration package, which disables the warnings completely. If you don't need to track the e-mails via Outlook then CDONTS is a good option, but otherwise, ClickYes might be your best bet.

Your other option is to downgrade Outlook to an earlier service pack.
