Complicated Access 2003 sending Emails Issue

I have a program (Access 2003) that generates an email and sends it.  
It works OK on a normal host.  
It works OK on a host using RDC if connected to that host.  
If the task is scheduled on a host that is only accessed thru RDC and the RDC connection is closed,  the task stops (hangs up really) until the RDC connection is re-established.
Click-Yes is running on the host on which the task is scheduled.
Does anyone know of an Outlook setting to cause it not to hang?
It takes off immediately when the RDC connection is re-established.
Thanks,  Miike (BFOG)

Could be. Are you using the full version of ClickYes, or are you using the free version? The free version doesn't work properly in TS/Citrix environments, nor does it work when the workstation is locked (i.e. unattended).

See here:

http://www.contextmagic.com/express-clickyes/

Notice fht feature matrix about halfway down that page in the section titled "Express ClickYes vs. ClickYes Pro. Which one suits you better".

Finally: IMO, ClickYes (and other programs like this) are a kluge, and should not be used where reliability and dependability are at stake. You are far better off using something like Redemption or (my favorite) vbMAPI to do this, as they don't rely on simply "clicking" an onscreen button (which may or may not work).

Does the Task hang, or does Outlook hang?

If it's the Task, are you certain that the Task is set to run with a login that has sufficient permissions to run unattended tasks (generally this would be an Administrator-level login)?

I am not certain.
The task is run as Administrator and has full rights.
I think it is Outlook since the message "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook.  Do you want to allow this?  If this is unexpected..." is sitting on the screen when I RDC into the machine.  As soon as I connect the message goes away and the email is sent.  I think it has something to do with RDC interacting with Outlook.  Click-Yes will normally handle that process, - maybe Click-Yes is hung-up and can't answer the message.
