Microsoft Access can not send emails after security updates applied.

Last Modified: 2019-12-03
I updated to office 2010 on server 2012R2. After running all Microsoft updates, Microsoft Access will no longer send emails.

Error: "Microsoft Access can't send a message for the reason stated in the preceding alert. ... Before attempting to send an e-mail message from Microsoft Office Access, resolve the problem identified in the previous message, or configure your computer to send and receive e-mail messages".  

Using the "Email Database Object" to send a query.  Ran perfectly for years prior to update.

Please advise.
