I am trying to create an outlook email from my VB.NET Forms application.  When I try to I get an warning from outlook asking if I want to allow the program to access my email program.  Is there a way to stop this warning?

This is what I put together for the new email creation:

    If lblemail.Text <> String.Empty Then
            Dim oApp As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Application = New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Application
            Dim oEmail As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.MailItem = oApp.CreateItem(OlItemType.olMailItem)
            oApp.CreateItem(OlItemType.olMailItem)
            oEmail.Recipients.Add(lblemail.Text)
            Employeeemail = oEmail.SenderEmailAddress
        End If

Hello logoncom,

That is an Outlook security measure implemened starting in Outlook 2000 SP2, and persisting
at least through 2002 and 2003.

To disable it, I've used three products:

1) Express ClickYes
http://www.contextmagic.com/express-clickyes/
There is a free version and a Pro version for ~$30 with more features.  I've used the pro version.
It works as advertised.  I'm not using it currently.  I'm using the MAPILab product instead.

2) MAPILab Advanced Outlook Security
http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/security/
A free COM add-in for Outlook.  I am using it now and I like it

3) Redemption
http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/
A DLL you can use in your code to disable the warnings.  Free download, but you must pay a
license to distribute.  I've used it and like it.


Regards,

Patrick

you better use System.Net.Mail if you can. see http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2007/09/Using-SystemNetMail.aspx

I'm also having the same issue when I schedule outlook tasks through my program... so system.net.mail will not solve all my problems.  I will look into the other downloads unless there is another way for task assigments with outlook.
