We have just upgraded a server from NT 4.0 to Windows 2003 standard.  We also upgraded the version of office on this server from Office 97 to Office 2003.  (all of this worked prior to the upgrade)
This server runs certain processes.  When there is a a problem with these processes the server kicks out the error message.This error message gets e-mailed (e-mail addresses are obtained from an access database) to many individuals outside of the company.
The problem is as follows:  When this message gets kicked  out Outlook keeps sending a message that says the following:
A program is trying to automatically send e-mail on your behalf.  Do you want to allow this?  

I have tried the registry hack
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins\PDFMOutlook.PDFMOutlook\
change Loadbehavior from a 3 to a 0.
Restart Outlook.

The problem with this is when I looked in the registry in the Loadbehavior line the number to change is a 9 and not a 3.
I changed it to a 0 to see if this will work.  Waiting for another ueser to test this.

I have tried this same thing before on another users desktop as he was having a problem with a third party application and this registry change did not fix his problem.

What do I need to do in order to get rid of this message.  I'm pretty sure it has to do with all of the new security in Outlook.  If this message does not go away he has to click on this error message about 400 times in order for all of the e-mails to go out.  Any help would be apprecaited.
