Using freeware with Email script

Obi asked that I post something about automating a script I used to email a report to a customer from our report sever.  I have a script that runs a report designed in Cognos and attaches it to an email out of Outlook.  The only problem with this is that Outlook security patch asks if it’s ok for the program to send an email on my behalf, defeating the purpose of automation.  After doing some asking and some research, there is a freeware program called ClickYes that my lan admin agreed to load on our sever.  The strict purpose of this freeware is to click yes to the security question mentioned above.  Feel free to email me with any questions or if you’d like to see how I set it up.
