A program is trying to automatically send e-mail on your behalf

Hi everybody
I am trying to get rid of that annoying message. Already been through most of the forums and did all I can think of.
Before I'll describe, a simple question: What security update causes it? I will be more than happy to remove it, but could not find its number anywhere. If you know, you will save me some troubleshooting and will not have to read the rest of the problem description
:-)
In case not:

The problem occurs on one workstation only. The user is a domain admin.

I followed this article already:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ork2003/HA011402931033.aspx

I've attached the security form and its location/configuration.
I think I havent configured something right. When I try to choose the new form it generates an error message "Could not load an object because it's not available on this machine".

Attached files:
1. Public Folder Location and name.
2. Public folder settings. Elad Rix is the guy with the problem
El-Mul is a security group which includes all employees.
3. The security form tab.
4. The security form configuration

I presume the user has XP SP3 which introduced the feature ... afaik.  It is also in Vista but easier to remove there.

They can modify  code to use redemption:

They can use an outlook add-in i.e:
http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/security

Or finally use clickyes

Thanx for the fast reply.
The second one looks nice (and also free), but they are all a workaround.
Is this security update a part of SP3 or a separate security update that can be removed?
The user has Win XP, not sure whether it is SP2 or SP3

The security update is a fundamental of SP3.  I do not believe it can be removed short of reverting to a pre SP3 state.

The alternatives are indeed a workaround.  The feature was however introduced by MS because of the viral infection issues, so we are a bit stuck ... at least MAPIlab which I use on my XP machine means my own code can run freely whilst maintaining the security.

Vista could also be an alternatve where if the application is VBA then outlook can accept office applications using VBA mail activities without the security feature being tripped.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

OK, it is Win XP sp3.
I dont want to use a workaround.
Can you have a look at what I've posted and see what I've done wrong?
Microsoft has an article regarding that issue, and it can be reconfigured so that annoying message wont appear.

I don't know for sure the article you refer to but I suspect it involves accepting any and all macros to run without intereference.  It's your choice but I think you'll struggle to find anyone who recommend that action except on a pc that is particularly well locked down and isolated.  Note if the reference in the initial post is th article you refer to then I am not familiar with it as I am strongly of the opinion as stated in that article, (lowering security settings may increase your risk .... yada yada yada) ... it's not a good idea.

So what people usually do?
Not installing SP3, installing a third party software to everybody?

Cant say as a hard fact but I would imagine mix of three apps I suggested in large measure and in that order with clickyes in my opinion being the least satisfactory ... but sometimes it better meets peoples requirements.

Note Generally speaking redemption is appropriate for user code and mapilab for mail through outlook
