Nope, it's not obvious from what I wrote. But then, that's my whole
problem, I'm not sure where I should start looking. :)

I don't believe that the server requires authentication. Working with
our SA, we were able to send an email on that box using a unix command
(I forget which, I'm not a unix dude), it worked fine.

I'll try it, but I'm not sure what you mean by "your-client-url"? Do you
mean the url of the box I'm trying to email from? Please clarify...

My ultimate goal is to connect to an exchange server and process email
there. So if this is relevant now, it will be later. :)
