Yes, warnings appear to be due to way FileMaker authenticates, and do not neccessarily mean there was any problem with the login. If you google for error message, "Warning 661" you will pick up lots of forum discussions on the subject. Have not found any solution to this, other than turn off warning e-mails.

Possible, but more likely would be an opener file that automatically logs in with low level "guest" account, that does not have access to main application. When "guest" login fails will just open up normal login for user, so they will not see any problem.
