Want to send a pre-established email message automatically

    When a certain condition occurs on my server, I want to send a set
    message (subject line only) to a pre-set email address. Can this be
    done without having a mail server running on my system. I have either
    outlook express, outlook or netscape mail available, but I don't want
    to have to have any user interaction. In fact the email is a message
    to my cell I really would hate to have to
    install and run something like sendmail that would allow me to do
    this.

    thanks in advance for any help

    Without knowing more about the "certain conditions", I cannot really help.
    But, if the "certain conditions" are "an email meeting a certain criteria
    comes into the inbox", you could setup a rule in Outlook/Outlook Express
    that automatically forwards the message to your phone.

    Why doesn't your server already have a mail capability? Is it your own
    Windows PC or something?

    Google for "SSMTP". Yes, there is a Windows version available.

    If you want something REALLY lightweight and know how to program, you could
    write a little proggie doing the (very basic) comunication on the
    appropriate ports.
