Hi, is there any way I can use ant's mail task so it sends mail through a Microsoft Exchange server? Or is there an alternative to sending mail from an ant script that will allow me to connect to an Exchange server?

If Ant has a mail task then it should be possible to use it to send mail via any SMTP server. Exchange is an SMTP server.

<target name="email">
<mail mailhost="mail.server" charset="UTF-8" user="you" password="pass"

tolist="${email.list}" cclist="${cc.list}">

There are a few required libraries, just see the mail task.
I agree. Here's the link:
