    Security warning when automating Outlook (2000)

    I am using Outlook Automation to sending emails from Access. As far as I can tell the code works but I get an Outlook warning popup that tells me that "A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook..."

    As it happens the error is mistaken, the email addresses that I am using are all coming from the Access database, but is there a way to stop this happening? The ideal would be something that could be included in the automation code. Otherwise, are there security settings somewhere in Outlook that could be set? I am creating the database on an Office 2000 system but the users are on Office XP (2002 I think).

    I downloaded a free utility, Express ClickYes from http://www.express-soft.com/mailmate/clickyes.html. It works well on my system (office 2000 on Windows XP). The Outlook popups appear but then disappear just as quickly. I'll find out tomorrow if it works on an Office XP system.

    ClickYes works well with Office XP too (at least in SP-1 and SP-2; I have no plans to install SP-3)

    There is no particular problem with Office XP SP-2, but Woody is not exactly enthusiastic about SP-3. See Woody's Office Watch vol 9 no 8 and vol 9 no 9.
