Running SBS 2003 Premium on a HP ML 150 server.
I have installed Office 2000 (only Word, Excel and Access) on this server.
Each time I open an Access mdb file, SBS displays a security warning asking if I want to open this file.  '
How do I tell SBS 2003 not to display this warning all the time?

Digitally sign your files with a commercial security certificate (I got mine from Comodo: www.instantssl.com), then deploy your files with that cert attached. Make sure your workstations are running the correct version of Jet (SP8) and that they correctly turn on Sandbox mode.
