How to turn off Outlook 2003 warning: A program is trying to send email...

Hi, All.
We have recently upgraded to Outlook 2003. It has this new security setting that we want to turn it off.

I have created programs in vb6 and vb.net that use Outlook object library to send emails. Now every time it sends email, a message box pops up asking for confirmation.

"A program is trying to automatically send email on your behalf. Do you want to allow this?"

Is there a way to turn it off?
Ideally, I don't want to turn it off for all operations. I just want to change the setting in the code before my itme.send. I have searched the library but did not find the answer. Or as a get around, I want to programmatically click yes on the popup, so the unattended operation can continue.

Thanks!

Hi ommer,

It cannot be turned off.  There are three ways to get around it.  One, yes Click-Yes (http://www.contextmagic.com/express-clickyes) a tool that clicks yes for you.  Two, use Outlook Redemption (http://www.dimastr.com/redemption) a COM component that circumvents Outlook security.  Three, re-write your code an an Outlook add-in.  Add-ins have different security rules.

Cheers!

Look at the times, Andre.  We posted at almost the same time.  I hadn't seen your post yet or I wouldn't have posted at all.

Yup, saw that...but, I was also making sure I wasn't missing something.  I am always into learning something new.  After 17 years in IT, one thing I've learned, is always be will to "learn."  It's all good man.

Besides...this is what I do when my phone, Blackberry, and/or email isn't lit up like a Christmas Tree!  Know what I mean...?
