How can I set up Outlook so my fax server can access e-mail addresses?

I have a program sending e-mails automatically to a fax server from my account. Before the e-mail will send, I always get the message: "A program is trying to access an e-mail address you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this?" I have to respond before the e-mail is sent out. Is there any way to suppress this message box to make the whole thing transparent? I'm using Outlook 2002 on Windows 2000 client. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
Yes, there is. You'll need to modify Outlook's security behavior to allow other applications to access your mail store. Outlook 2002 includes security features to prevent other programs from accessing your e-mail addresses or sending e-mail messages programmatically.

Have a look at  Administrator information about e-mail security features, which discusses how to configure Outlook's behavior in this regard so that you don't have to answer the prompt every time.
