Hi, Phil, Several ways to do this. The simpliest maybe to capture the original smtp server name, reset it to a temporary new one, send the email, then reset the server name back. Something like: old-host: system/schemes/default/host system/schemes/default/host: "new.smtp.mynetwork.dom" send [myname--mydomain--dom] "Hello" system/schemes/default/host: old-host The alternative approach is to hack a new copy of send function that will allow a refinement that allows an alternative smtp host name to be passed to the function. If you prefer this later approach and my description is less than clear, I would be happy to present a prototype. (I am short of time right now.) Hope this helps. --Scott Jones
