A program is trying to send a email on your behalf.  I have created a simple macro in access and want to send an email with this message popping up.  I used click yes but am worried abou the security of it.  I am a little rusty on my VB skills so any help would be great.

Thanks

An alternative to using ClickYes is to use Outlook Redemption. That way you can handle the security in your code and not worry about ClickYes just letting anything go out...

mkurtzhals,

Try sending the same through OutlookExpress instead.
