Bypassing Outlook Security Update/Warning by krantzkid
Posted: 1 Apr 03

I've done a lot of searching for a fix for the Outlook Security Update, and found 2:

1) This solution is an executeable that must be present on the machine sending the emails out.  This might mean on all client workstations, if necessary - but it is a free download:


I run a shell command to start an instance of the software, then run my code to send mail.  Works great, pretty much invisible to the user.

2) Probably the "proper" way to do this - check out:


It is written by a Microsoft MVP, and is very techincal in nature.  I did finally figure it out, but it takes some wrangling.  If you are not technically proficient (i.e. never programmed) this probably won't work for you.  It uses extended MAPI to send out the mail in a "safe" library format.  

This Micrsoft update was a major thorn in my side for a long time, hope this helps some people!
