The new popups are secure frames. You cannot circumvent them with addons. (From what I've seen, it should only appear when sending mail with items or gold to a character that is not your own.)

They were added because of addons like WeakAuras not being willing to take the necessary steps to prevent scam code from being run (i.e., whitelisting only for imported code). You can see some of the discussion at one of the bug reports.

Despite what the authors are discussing at some points in there, their blacklist was more-or-less useless (makes it slightly harder to do, but not that much harder), with there always being ways to gain access to the mail and trade frames via :GetParent() and :GetChildren() methods. So this is Blizzard's solution, and if you find a way to circumvent it from an addon, that is a bug.
