sending email notification

P: n/a
Hello,

I'd like to make a sort of web tracking system for internal stuff at
my office.
But I'm having problems about how to add email notification to my
script.

I already tried to send email by using the 'email' module, with no
success (the connection can't be stablished). I think my case is a
very specific enviroment (may be very common):
* Local /corporate intranet controlled through NTFS proxy.
* I don't have access to a regular SMTP mail server, regular email
access is through outlook email server, so, I'll have to send emai
messages to the corporate outlook server.
* Desktop / server enviroment is windows (if I make a cgi script the
server where it'll run is a regular Windows XP machine here in the
office running Apache).

Any ideas, is it possible?

Sure it is possible. You will need proper configuration
on Exchange Server (you called it an outlook server) and
us IP address of that server as your outgoing email server.
I have a client that has such a configuration and they did
get it working (I didn't do the Exchange configuration so
I can't help you there).
