Outlook security limits access of my mailing program to 10 minutes

    I use ACT Contact Management Software for all my email.

    It uses Outlook as the email engine for sending my email. Outlook has a security feature that prevents any other program from accessing it for more than 10 minutes at a time to prevent a worm from accessing your addresses. I store no addresses in ACT. I store info only in ACT.

    I understand the reason behind this measure, but I need to either disable it or at least extend the time to 1 hour or so. Where do I go to change the settings?

    It looks like ClickYes Pro would be of help to you. A friend of mine used this software to stop that annoying outlook warnings.

    Take care,

    Someone else mentioned that program and it worked beautifully. However, I have now upgraded to ACT 7 and it isn't needed any longer.
