Default Access email blocked by Outlook

How do I work around the Outlook Object model guardian that blocks any emails I generate from within Access

Thanks

You don't, at least not purely using the Outlook Object model.

You can let your users be annoyed by that pop-up and teach them how to use it.

You can drive mass mailings using Word Mail merge.

For one-off messages you can go directly to SMTP yourself using the WSock32.dll... not easy to do and not as rich in features as the Outlook Object model.

Ultimately any solution to this problem is a hack that will be used by hackers and mass mailers (a.k.a. spammers). That's why I say "you don't". If you find a way to do it, somebody will find a way to shut it down.

Thank you for your response. Helen Feddema in her book " MS Access App Development" suggest using the redemption library to avoid the outlook model guardian.

Have you heard of this approach and any experience with it? I have a client that wants my db to broadcast an email when certain permits are expiring and before I suggest installing another piece of software on their server I'd like to know if anyone has any experience with it.

I am not aware of the redemption library.

Based on what you need to do, I would definitely suggest looking into using (e)mail merge in Word. I haven't tried it with Word/Access 2000. But 2002 and up work nicely and are quite easy to use.

Another alternative is Total Access Emailer. See http://www.fmsinc.com/Products/access.asp

I have been using this with mixed results to broadcast to PNWADG members. The mixed results are that spam filters seem to be getting in the way of our messages getting through. This may be caused by several factors. One may be that people who have been getting our broadcast are flagging us as spammers (even though our list is optin) and that puts us on black lists. Another may be that the characteristics of our announcements get us auto-flagged as spam. As bright as our group is, they can't seem to figure out how to put pnwadg.org on a white list.:(
