New Microsoft security update causing problems with automatically SENDing emails

P: n/a
I have a program that's been automatically generating and sending emails
flawlessly. My clients workstation had an automatic Microsoft security
update done on it.. and now it's bombing on this line :

lobjMessage.SEND(0,0,0)

Apparently, the security patch doesn't allow external programs/utilities
to SEND Outlook emails. The emails are saved and can be manually sent
out later, but this is obviously not how it's intended to be used.

Any ideas? Anyone else having this problem?

Thanks!
Jodye

Most of us starting having that problem about 4 or 5 years ago. Your client
must be a bit behind on their updates.

The simple answer is to just NOT use Outlook as the messaging library.
There is no way to turn those security warnings off at the client side of
things and it is often difficult or impossible to roll back the updates that
cause them.

There is a library called Redemption that mimics Outlook's object model but
which does not have the security issue. Office 2007 also eliminates those
prompts as long as the system is up-to-date on anti-virus software.

I personally use the CDOSys library whenever I can. That is automatically
included on Windows 2000 and higher.
