It calls "sendDetails"?
... which in turn calls "emaildetails.htm"?

In principle, it should have no problems to access scripts.

*HOWEVER* note that proxy roles are not passed to called objects.
Thus, "emaildetails.htm" does not run with proxy roles.
If it accesses objects from "admin folder", then you will
get an "Unauthorized".

A possible solution could be: let "sendDetail" access and process
all protected information and pass the results only (hopefully elementary
and therefor unrestricted) to the page template for formatting.
Let "sendDetail" then send the formatted message itself.
