I am using Windows 8.1 Pro and on a Surface Pro 2. So I am trying to send an e-mail via Access 2016 and I am getting a pop-up message saying "Microsoft Outlook" on the top and with the message "A program is trying to send an e-mail message on your behalf. If this is unexpected, click Deny and verify your antivirus software is up to date. For more information about e-mail safety and how you might be able to avoid getting this warning, click Help."
So things I have already tried to resolve issues.
1. My Access Settings in the Trust Center: Macro Settings: Enable All macros (not recommended; potentially dangerous code can run) ActiveX settings: Enable all control without restriction and without prompting (not recommended; potential dangerous controls can run)
In Access 2016 I do not see the option for programmatic access.
2. My Outlook Settings:
Macro Settings: Enable all macros (not recommended; potentially dangerous code can run)
Antivirus status:Valid Never warn me about suspicious activity (not recommended)
3. Attempting to download anti-virus software from Microsoft - to stay up to date
Microsoft Security Essentials: I went to www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5201 its the Microsoft Security Essentials Download, and when I download it says I already have Microsoft Windows Defender and it has similar functions, so it won't install.
Microsoft Windows Defender: This looks to be installed on my computer and up to date. I have attempted to tinker with the setting but still not working. I have added the file to excluded files and locations. I have even tried turning off real-time protection. (I have turned it back on). No- success in just turning off this warning.
4. Lastly I have tried: Converting the email macro to VBA. I then added the following code via VBA.
No Success in this either.
Please advise on how to get rid of the pop-up when sending an e-mail. I am not interested in using keyboard shortcuts for this. I know thats another option.
