"A program is trying to automatically send e-mail..." workaround

    I have just installed SpamAssassin on my mail server. If it misses a Spam, I
    need to resend the spam to a particular mailbox to "Re Learn" the message as
    spam.

    Using Outlook, I have to Open the message (sometimes they are offensive),
    click Actions/Resend answer the "You didn't send this originally" warning,
    change the TO to "spam", click Send, Close the original message, and finally
    delete it.

    I wrote a macro
    For Each objMailItem In objExplorer.Selection
    objMailItem.To = ""
    objMailItem.Send
    Next objMailItem
    so I could just select a bunch of False Negatives and click one toolbar
    button. I guess I don't really mind the "A program is trying to automatically
    send e-mail..." dialog (although I'd prefer not to see it) but the 5 second
    delay before you can click YES is particularly annoying.

    I wrote a rule that does this, but it can't be called automatically. I have
    to move all the FN spams to a particular folder, click Rules Wizard, Run Now,
    confirm the correct folder is selected, select the Spam rule, and Ok, then
    Cancel.

    Also way too much work.

    Anyone have any ideas on working around this silly 5-second wait?
    Sending/Deleting a selected few messages another way?

  2. There isn't one, unless you use the Outlook Redemption object model, as
    described on slipstick.com. Never tried it, but I gather it works.
