Using HTML Mime Mail for PHP to send email, but need to authenticate through Exchange server#1
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;
$mail->setHTML($message);
$mail->setSubject($subject);
$mail->setSMTPParams('mail.domain.com', 25, true, 'user', 'pass');
$mail->setFrom("no-reply@domain.com");
$mail->setReturnPath("webmaster@domain.com");

if($message)
$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.

Re: Using HTML Mime Mail for PHP to send email, but need to authenticate through Exchange server#3
Exchange supports the standard SMTP Auth mechanism, so I would use that. Here is an example using Pear::Mail from here.<?phprequire_once "Mail.php";$from = "Sandra Sender <sender@example.com>";$to = "Ramona Recipient <recipient@example.com>";$subject = "Hi!";$body = "Hi,\n\nHow are you?";$host = "mail.example.com";$username = "smtp_username";$password = "smtp_password";$headers = array ('From' => $from, 'To' => $to, 'Subject' => $subject);$smtp = Mail::factory('smtp', array ('host' => $host, 'auth' => true, 'username' => $username, 'password' => $password));$mail = $smtp->send($to, $headers, $body);if (PEAR::isError($mail)) { echo("<p>" . $mail->getMessage() . "</p>"); } else { echo("<p>Message successfully sent!</p>"); }?>

This would work if it authenticated properly with the exchange server. By properly, I mean it authenticates up to the exchange standards. The only success I have had sending an email to this email address is by using outlook or the webmail version of outlook. Something to do w/ exchange.
