I'm running Windows XP and I have an app that eMails automatically. This part works fine. The question is XP notifies me that a program is trying to eMail and is this okay. How do I suppress this question to let it eMail without asking me? Thanks, Tony

    Check the Windows firewall and see if it is blocking traffic on port 25.

    We got around this by using SMTP. We have a production app that sends 100's of emails. When we went to XP, we had the same problem and converted our app to send through exchange as SMTP. Works for us.

    Assuming that is what you want. Also assuming that you are using Outlook Express on your system. Under Tools, Options, Security there is a checkbox 'Warn me when other applications try to send mail as me.' Click it off. I imagine that Outlook has something similar. Do note that if you do get infected you might end up being a spam machine or whatever. Note also you might have to make changes to any other program that monitors outgoing email.
