How to allow other programs to send email via outlook

Hi, I've just invested several thousand euros in a retail management system for my two shops. The problem I have is that the two local databases need to update each other by email - the program is designed to on schedule force outlook or outlook express to send email, but when it tries to Outlook says ' another program is trying to send email via outlook'. It gives me an option to permit the action this time, or in the next (up to) ten minutes, but there is no option to permanently allow my program to access outlook. How can I get round this security feature in Outlook?

If you are using Outlook 2000, you could uninstall SP3 which installs the security feature, or look at Sajuks' link for clickyes. I have used clickyes to circumvent the exact problem you are experiencing with no problems at all.

Yes, that is the only way to do it.

Similar programs such as Palm Sync and Chapura Conduit do it the same way - waiting for the dialog warning box to pop-up that a program is trying to access Outlook then choosing to allow it (for up-to 10 minutes.)
