SendObject Warning in Outlook 2003

P: n/a
Warning message in Outlook 2003 while using SendObject.

When i try to use sendobject to send an email, a warning massage pops
up, saying that "Outlook is trying to send an email.......if this is a
virus, you should choose no."

Can I do away with this message and have it send the email without user
intervention?

I wasn't able to find any optional parameters for the SendObject that
would serve the purpose.

This email is being initiated from MS Access 97 and it happens to be a
shared application where we have multiple users using it. So a
programming change within the application would probably be better than
installing some freeware individually on everyone's PC to get this
working.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Andy.

This is a security "feature" of Outlook 2003 and really has nothing to do
with SendObject per se. If you're in a network environment using Exchange
Server as your mail server the Exchange Administrators can do some things to
eliminate these messages. There is nothing you can do "on the client" on in
your app to prevent them except to use a different messaging library besides
MAPI/Outlook to send the messages (something that is impossible with the
SendObject command).

Rick,

Thanks for your response. Yes, I am in a network environment using
Exchange Server. Could you please respond to the two questions I have
here for you.

1) If you can vaguely tell me what settings on the exchange server would
need to be changed to achieve this.

2) Can these settings be changed on an application level or group level?

I'm just trying to have the users of my application get by this
situation...I don't want to turn it off for the rest of the corporation.

Thanks,
Andy.

I know there are some that are against using Sendkeys, but you can
SendKeys the enter key.

I'm not that familiar with it. I "think" it has something to do with having
them publish a custom Outlook form. Check the site at the following link.
They shoudl have all of the information.

Hi Andy,

We did something like this at work a while back and ended up having to
publish a form to the public folder in Outlook.
I hunted down some stuff and found this Microsoft link which explains
it much better than I ever could (watch for word-wrap)

http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/as...362851033.aspx

Hope it helps,

Cheers,

Phil

Hi
I have used Outlook Redemption (see Google) for this, though you would
have to program the outlook COM interface more explicitly than just
using sendobject. Though when I used it (a couple of years ago) I used
A97, I see that it says that 97 is not supported. But I suspect it is
outlook97 which is not supported, not Access97. Also I see that a
distributable version is $199.99.

"Outlook Redemption works around limitations imposed by the Outlook
Security Patch and Service Pack 2 of MS Office 98/2000 and Office 2002
and 2003 (which include Security Patch) plus provides a number of
functions to work with properties and functionality not exposed
through the Outlook object model."
