    Frustrating Dialog (2000, SR-3)

    Doggone it! I just applied SP3 and it's got a maddening security 'feature' that warns me whenever a script accesses the address book. This is absolutely awful, because I'm running this code:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim loRecipient As Recipient
    Dim liToCount As Integer
    Dim lcText As String

    liToCount = 0
    lcText = "Multiple recipients were specified in the To: field. Continue sending?"

    For Each loRecipient In Item.Recipients
    If loRecipient.Type = 1 Then
    liToCount = liToCount + 1

    If liToCount = 2 Then
    If MsgBox(lcText, vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2, "Item Send") <> vbYes Then
    Cancel = True
    End If

    Exit For
    End If
    End If
    Next
    End Sub
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Any idea how I can turn this 'feature' off?

    TIA,

    That's gotta hurt! Since you can't roll back the service pack you are kind of stuck. I see no coding alternatives that avoid security yet provide the functionality you want. IMHO your best bet is to go with extended MAPI, which gets around the security model. There is a version called Outlook Redemption that is available as a free download from www.dimastr.com. It's on my list to look at...

    Figgers. I now wish I'd never applied the patch.


    > go with extended MAPI

    I guess I should know about this, but I sheepishly admit that I don't. Any leads?


    > www.dimastr.com

    I'll have a look, thanks.

    > Outlook Redemption

    Works like a charm. Now if I can only figure out what's wrong with my certificate server so I can resign my project... :-)
    (See attached text that I just posted to news:microsoft.public.win2000.security, if you've got any ideas.)

    I really LOVE that Outlook Redemption -- I'm probably going to buy the distribution version.

    Just read this about SelfCert.exe:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;EN-US;206637

    Which is good, because I managed to create a cert with my mail server, and I installed it through MMC. Guess what? It didn't show up in Outlook's list of certs available for project signing. Why? Who knows...

    BUT, with your help it all works now. Thanks again <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23>
