Sending email with attachment from MS Access 2013

I have a new Access 2013 database that uses a macro to  email a PDF report using Outlook 2013.  When the mail is sent I get a message that says a third party is attempting to send an email.  I would like to turn off that warning so there is no user intervention required.   I would like to do it in the macro if possible since I'm not that well versed in VBA yet.

Last I heard, ...this utility will work for what you need:

There is a demo you can download and test.
There is also a straightforward set of configuration steps.
No VBA coding is required
;-)

Note that you have other options here as well.
1. You can use a utility that does not use Outlook as the email client, ...thus side-steeping this issue entirely.
But most of these require a fair amount of coding...

2. The Outlook Security pop-up will only display if you are actually "sending" the email via the macro.
If you are only sending one email, then you can avoid this pop-up by setting the macro to "display" the email. (instead of sending it),...
The downside with this is that you have to manually click the "Send" button to set the email on its way.
The upside might be that you can verify the email contents before sending.

...But IMHO, ClickYes seems like a god fit for you...

Thanks Jeff,

I had seen the Click Yes program before but I didn't know how well it worked.  I downloaded the demo and so far it works great.  I'll kick the tires for a few more days but it looks like it will do just fine for me.

Thanks again.
