Outlook 2003 - Sending Mail from VB .Net Application without an Exchange Server
Posted on 2006-06-08
I am hooking into Outlook 2003 from an external VB .Net application. The application sends text messages to a pager when specific customer activity occurs in a history tabel of a security database. There isn't any Exchange Server. Outlook is sending/receiving mail on a standalone PC using a POP3 account at an external e-mail service provider. My application is causing the new Outlook security model to issue dialogues to the user about accessing the Address Book.
Ordinarily, I would setup Outlook security via the public folder and form for Exchange and set the appropriate settings to eliminate these dialogues. However, this environment has no Exchange Server. The application is running on a standalone PC with Outlook 2003 setup to access a POP3 account at ComCast.
What can I do to eliminate the dialogues on this PC for this application (or all applications if it has to be done at a more global level)?
Thanks in advance for your assistance. This is for a solution for one of my customers so I am awarding 500 points in an effort to get a speedy resolution.
