    Outlook E-mail Security Update (Access 2000)

    Hi,
    Can anyone confirm for me that there is no way in Access 2000 to automatically send MailItems and TaskRequests through Outlook 2000 to others without the message box:
    "A program is trying to automatically send e-mail on your behalf.
    Do you want to allow this?"
    doh!
    Thanks
    John

    This is probably more an Outlook problem than an Access problem. If you don't get an answer here, consider posting it in the Outlook forum.

    Thanks Hans
    I'll have a go and see what I get, I never thought of an approach from the other side.

    Hans is correct - this is a Outlook "feature" that was introduced as a part of SP2 of Office 2000. SP3 does offer some relief as I understand it, but there are problems with SP3 so I would avoid that. There is also a hack that is available that will supposedly kill some of the most parts of what they did with SP2, but I don't have personal experience with it. The only other alternative is to remove Office 2000, reinstall and only go as far as SR-1. You will probably get more detailed info in the Outlook forum.

    Thanks Wendell

    I used the Redemption fix and it has worked!

    I wanted to automatically send planning officers newly assigned cases as task requests. The code also sends a separate reminder, listing all their cases that are approaching an expiry period. I just hope that this is a permanent solution.

    Regards

    Edited by Pat 30/11/02. I must be getting swapsies, I meant to write post 149680 NOT 149860.
    Have a look at <post#=149680>post 149680</post#>. This may help.

    It's a permanent solution to the security patches that mess up MAPI calls to Outlook because it uses Extended MAPI, which is something different and doesn't have the security holes in it that MAPI does. However, the latest versions of Windows/Office/Outlook are migrating from MAPI to SMTP as an email protocol, so I'm sure there will be new problems to deal with.

    Hi

    I just though I'd add something to this even though its been solved. We use a .Reg file to fix this. Its called Security.Reg and is just a couple of lines lon:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftSecurity]
    "CheckAdminSettings"=dword:00000001

    It works most of the time and stops the annoying pop-up. Lately though, we have had to change our Domain and post office due to the indroduction of Active Directory. For people on the new domain, this does not work anymore, though for those who have not yet been migrated, it is still effective.

    You can use that where you control the settings, but in many places the registry is off limits, or at least that part of it. If you were passing an application to a client, you definitely wouldn't want to monkey with their security settings. <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15>
