Sending email from Access


I am composing an email with Access VB and then sending it from within
Access.

Everything works correctly (the email actually goes!) but Outlook ask
some
irritating questions that the user is required to answer. A summary of
the
relevant code is:

Dim mailObj as Outlook.MailIte m

Set mailObj = OutlookObject.C reateItem(Outlo ok.olMailItem)
With mailObj
.Recipients.Add emailAddress
.Subject = "some heading"
.Body = aMessage
.Attachments.Ad d anInvoice
.Send
End With

The emailAddress in a string containing the email address stored in the
database but when the code reaches the .Recipients.Add statement,
Outlook
issues the message:

"A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored in
Outlook.
Do you want to allow this?"

Well, I am not trying to access an address stored in Outlook. When the
use
clicks 'Yes', the same question is asked once more. Again the user must
click
'Yes'

When the code reaches the .Send statement, Outlook issues the following:

"A program is trying to automatically send e-mail on your behalf. Do
you
want to allow this?"

Outlook appears to be over cautious, assuming, or at least, suspecting a
virus.

How can I prevent these irritating messages appearing. The user simply
wants to press a button on a Form and have the appropriate email sent
automatically without having the answer 'Yes' three times.

This is caused by the latest security patch from Microsoft - it's intended
to stop viruses spreading. Bizarrely there's currently no way of switching
it off - that I can find anyway - although sending automatic emails from
Access is a common function.

To get around it I uninstalled Outlook - and then reinstalled it without the
patch.

Hi Gurus I am trying to send a newsletter from Access. Can anyone tell me what is the simplest way to send an email from Access? I would prefer not to use outlook, because this gives me all these security warnings and besides, I would prefer not to look outlook at all, so that people with Access RT could also use my code. Is there a way to send an email from DOS perhaps?

Right guys. (I would like a solution to this in VB6 as this is what our needy app is written in, but any solutions that involve .NET would be much appreciated likewise as I could instantiate them, otherwise please forgive the crossposting.)

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
