Outlook 2003 - Sending Mail from VB .Net Application without an Exchange Server

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.

You can use the Redemption dll found here http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/    it allows you to bypass the security prompts by using safeMailItem instead of MailItem.

Your code should stay mostly the same except for using safeItems from redemption instead of the outlook items.

I followed the URL and the web site is on-line, but when I click on the Dowload link, the page does not display.  Maybe they are having issues with their server.  Is there any other site that I can download this from?

Tried again.  Same thing.  But I did get it to download.  After I clicked on the Developer Edition, I would get a blank web form with a placeholder like that of a missing image.  So, to get it to download, I right-clicked and performed a Save Target As....  That seemed to work if the file size is supposed to be 920k.

I'll give this a shot tonight or tomorrow depending on my schedule.  Thanks

I'll post my success here tomorrow night.
