    Accessing Outlook through 3rd party e-mail program (Outlook 2000 SR-1+)

    I work with a contact management program which allows the user the ability to send/receive e-mails. The program has no e-mail settings, just goes through the default e-mail client. With Outlook 2000 SR-1 or higher, everytime the user sends an e-mail, a message box appears prompting the user, basically verifying that its OK to send the e-mail. In addition, everytime the user tries to access the inbox (recieved e-mails), the user is prompted to allow access for X-minutes. This can be very annoying and I was wonding if there is anyway to disable the function.

    The program's developer would have to code around it. There is nothing the end user can do about this on her or his own.

    I am the Business Analysis for the product and developement doesn't know away around the issue. We thought there was some kind of setting in Outlook, which there is none. Do you or anyone know a backdoor way of getting around the issue, from a developement standpoint?

    You have to use extended mapi to get around the security. Most people I've heard talk about this say Outlook Redemption at www.dimastr.com is the best library out there. I can't say if it will provide what you need, but most of the MAPI calls are there. Good luck!
