Mail merge issues/ security delays with using Word to create merged emails

Hi,

I recently updated my officed product to OFfice 2000 sp-1 
then 2 then 3.

Before updating I had no troubles using Word to merge 
emails. However since updating I now get a HIGHLY 
annoying and TIME consuming window that asks me 
permission to automatically generate an outgoing email. 
Then I have to WAIT 5 second and CLICK YES per merged 
email. If you are trying to maintain a list of some sort 
and send 50-100 emails, this is indeed very annoying.

Any assitance to eliminate or by-pass this step would be 
GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks

Peter

I don't think there's anything to get around it completely with
Outlook/Word 2000, but there is a utility you can download called
Express ClickYes which will do the job of clicking that Yes button for
you, so you don't have to babysit the project.  More info here:

http://www.express-soft.com/mailmate/clickyes.html

FWIW, Outlook 2002 and Word 2002 (updated with a specific patch)
eliminate that warning dialog when doing a mail merge, so you might want
to consider upgrading, or perhaps wait for the release of Office 2003
later this year.

re-downloading mail on Outlook 2003
I just upgraded from Office 97 to Office 2003. Using Outlook 97, my wife and I were able to use different computers but share one email account. The same mail was downloaded to each PC one time. Now, the same mail gets downloaded over and over again on each PC. I obviously can choose to delete the mail from the server so that it only gets read once, but then the second PC will never see it. How can I get the same behavior from Outlook 2003 that I used to have? Reading 500 messages every 10 minutes makes the upgrade really unusable. Try creating a new mail profile on each comput...

Way to get Word to go back to 100% zoom when maximized
I do a lot of copying and pasting, and consequently I often shrink a Word doc to 75% or so view, so that I can see the entire page, when the Word window itself has been shrunk to half of my screen (so I can view another doc on the other side of the screen). When I maximize one of the Word windows, the zoom setting remains at 75% until I change it back to 100. Is there a way to get Word to reset the zoom setting, when a document is maximized? I know if this is my biggest problem with Word, I got it made.... I'm just wondering if this can be done. :) BTW--I'm on Word 2003 i...

CRM Security Question
I am trying to enable access to a few features in our MS CRM installation (specifically New/Case and New/Article).

Safe sendershould not go to junk mail
Hi, I have an web application sends email, I found outlook 2003 puts the emails to the junk mail folder if multiple emails were sent within a short period of time, about 1 minute. The initial one was ok went to inbox, while the followings went to junk mail. but if the gap between multiple emails sent time was longer, the problem went away. (each one went to inbox). This only happened for outlook 2003, not for outlook xp. The sender address is in the global address list, with the same domain with all my users. (so I think it qualified as safe sender.)

Exchange: Internal domain email address for external internet based email accounts
Hi, Management want to arrange it that affiliated individuals can have an email address alias from our domain, that will automatically be forwarded on to their internet based email accounts (hotmail, yahoo mail etc). I know I can do this by creating user accounts with mailboxes and then setting a forward to a contact containing their internet based email addresses, but this seems rather inefficient - there is no need for their mails to accumulate on mailboxes on our email servers. Is there a better solution, where outside users can email to an address that looks like it sits on our domain, bu...
