There are two options: one if there is a MAPI driver available that would work best, second option is to configure SQL Mail for use with SMTP and this kBAhttp://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;311231&sd=tech refers
Q5: Can I use SQL Mail with mail servers like Lotus Notes or Novell Groupwise? A5: You can use SQL Mail with third-party mail servers like Lotus Notes or Novell Groupwise; however, this configuration is only supported if the third-party mail server is configured as an Internet mail server. While it may be possible to configure Microsoft Outlook client to work with third-party mail servers, the use of the e-mail clients provided with those mail servers is not supported for use with SQL Mail. These e-mail clients provide their own implementation of the MAPI messaging subsystem, and have not been tested for use with SQL Mail.
I;m not sure whether it will work, but you can use SMTP mail using SPs to send notifications as described in thishttp://www.sqlteam.com/item.asp?ItemID=5003 article. And also refer to the bunch of arcticles related to SQLmail fromhttp://www.sqlteam.com/filtertopics.asp?topicID=125 here. Satya SKJ
