First off, the server: Exchange 2003 sp2 running on Windows 2003 Server sp2
I have a script that sends email to two email accounts, one called students@ and the other being fs@ (faculty/staff). We are setting both those email accounts to only accept incoming email by authenticated users on the exchange server, to spare ourselves from spam/junk mail. So right now the emails being sent by the script are not successful. I have the return-path email as a legit user, but it is not authenticated. I noticed that when I tried sending a test via my mail client (Apple's Mail.app) and since I use email through their IMAP server and not through exchange, my email failed as well.
Here is the code for sending the email:
$mail = new htmlMimeMail();
$message = $today.$announcements.$food.$upcoming;
$mail->setSMTPParams('mail.domain.com', 25, true, 'user', 'pass');
$mailresult = $mail->send(array($emailto));
I have never authenticated with an exchange server using the HTML Mime Mail for PHP (http://www.phpguru.org/static/mime.mail.html) class before. Any help would be appreciated.
Maybe there is another PHP class that easily allows authentication with an Exchange server?
EDIT: Are there any php mail classes out there that authenticate properly with an exchange server?
Another EDIT: The Exchange Server uses NTLM authentication and uses Active directory. Hope this helps.
