Hi...I am trying to send an e-mail from SAS that has an attachment. When I run the SAS Program, I get the following message that pops up:
A program is trying to automatically send e-mail on your behalf. If this is unexpected, click Deny and verify your antivirus software is up-to-date.
Once I click Allow, the e-mail is sent and everything works fine. Is there anyway to prevent or disable this message from popping up since I would like to have this program run at specified time of the day when I might be able to acknowledge and Click the Allow button.
I have checked with out IT department and all outgoing e-mails are sent with SMTP.
Thanks in Advance.

How is your smtp server defined for SAS? Is it using your local mail client or is it sending to a gateway elsewhere on your network? You might be able to configured your local email client to allow it.

In recent versions of Outlook, I think it pops up that dialog box for you as some sort of "your computer might have been turned into a spam-bot" warning. WHich annoyingly kills the ability to automate emails....
There are some little apps like http://www.contextmagic.com/express-clickyes/free-version.htm which are supposed to disable this outlook "feature". I haven't tried any, as all of my automated emails come from our linux server, which happily knows nothing of Outook (or Excel!)
