Per Intuit, a user cannot be logged in as Admin in QuickBooks and send an email:

  1. Right-click QuickBooks icon, then select Properties.
  2. Select the Compatibility Tab.
  3. Deselect Run this program as Administrator.
    Note: If Run this program as Administrator is grayed out, then first select the "Show Settings for All Users".
  4. Select Okay.
  5. Exit, then restart QuickBooks.
