    MAPISEND in Outlook 2002 (2002-SP2)

    I had only a SMALL amount of trouble when sending messages using MAPISEND in Outlook 98/Windows NT 4 via our Exchange servers.

    But when I use Outlook 2002/Windows XP I get a message in a box:

    Microsoft Outlook
    A program is trying to automatically send e-mail on your behalf.
    Do you want to allow this?
    If this is unexpected, it may be a virus and you should choose "No".


    All very well and good, but since I'm trying to send the message from a BATch file in the early morning, I'm not around to click on the Yes button.

    Anyone have any ideas about how to cause an automatic Yes reply?

    Thanks!

    Check Post 205312 or perhaps consider SMTPsend

    Thanks, Leif, but it seemed to me that they hadn't resolved the problem in the thread. Certainly if they are talking about "changing code", I don't have that option with a black-box utility, even if I could program the language!

    And (without having tried it!), I would think that SMTPsend is likely to experience the same problem as does MAPISEND, if it uses the same APIs. But yes, I will try it!

    I also did a TechNet search, and it talks about changing some Outlook Forms (about which I have never previously heard...).

    LATER...
    I tried SMTPsend and, once I had found out what my "SMTP gateway server" was called, it seems to work fairly well, and doesn't get trapped by Outlook 2002's Security Features! Thanks very much (as usual...)!
