Is there some way to configure HP Power Manager to not assume that there's an email server running locally?
We recently acquired an HP T1500 G3 UPS, which we're trying to control using HP Power Manager 4.2. The main reason we wanted to get this particular UPS is because it says it's capable of sending notifications (of the "Yo, the power's out, you may want to look into it" type) via email, as opposed to SNMP. Turns out, that's not entirely true.
The server is running Windows Server 2003. It is not running an email server of any sort - we do that via two different providers. Outlook email is provided by Verizon (not Exchange Server, just the outgoing and incoming email that ends up in Outlook), and our SMTP email service is provided by a small local company (i.e. a guy running an SMTP server on one of computers, for which we have a server name and password).
When we use CDO to send auto-generated notification emails, we have to provide the SMTP server name, port, username, and password. The HP Power Manager interface only allows us to enter the server name and the username. Thus, not surprisingly, the emails never go anywhere.
 I'm afraid all this email and server stuff is pretty far above my head. If these details aren't sufficient, I'm not sure what to do.
