How do you disable the "allow " request in microsoft outlook for each email sent by Filemaker?
I have looked into this in the past and never found a "free solution" but there is a product called Outlook Manipulator that will do this. I believe you can apply it at a client or outlook server level depending on the size of your problem.
In the end I use filemakers built in smtp option where there are bulk emails being sent but I always bcc the person generating the emails so they know what has been sent else the user is blind to what was or wasn't emailed. The benefit of using a client is being able to view sent items!
Best of luck.

Like Katy, I'd suggest you explore using the native "Send via: SMTP Server" option to have the outgoing emails bypass the installed/default email client on the user's workstation.
Regarding bcc copies to the user, that's also a good option, assuming the user wants to track what was sent, and along with that it makes sense for them to set up a mail sorting rule in Outlook to automatically divert the bcc copies to an appropriate folder (rather than clogging their In Box). Unfortunately, AFAIK, Outlook doesn't allow rules to divert the messages to the Sent Items folder the way some other mail applications do, but it should be no great trouble (and possibly preferable) to set up a folder for the purpose.

If you can't use the SMTP Server option there is a piece of software that some of my clients have used in the past called Click Yes which might help here:
They have a free version as well as a paid version.
