Send email from Access - Outlook security pop-up comes up BEHIND other windows, and sometimes can't be "found" to click on it!
Posted on 2006-06-10
In an Access application, users can click a button to send an email to the person whose record they are currently viewing, sometimes with an automatically composed message. In some places, Access collects a group of people to generate emails for. When Access tries to set up the email in Outlook, the infamous security warning pops up - where you have to click to allow access to Outlook for 1 minute, 5 minutes, etc. The users are OK with this. However, on some users machines recently, the security warning seems to pop up BEHIND other windows, and at times the users can't find it at all! The result is that they can't click on it, the emails don't get generated, and my database is "broken".
Is there some way to make the security warning pop up on TOP of everything? Isn't that what it is supposed to do?
