The <i>SendEmail</i> channel hook needs to be told where to find an SMTP server. This is a server that knows how to send emails to another computer.

Gmail apparently lets you use their SMTP servers: http://lifehacker.com/software/email-ap ... 111166.php

You would need to configure the hook to use your corporate SMTP server i.e. MS Exchange. Awasu would talk directly to it, bypassing Outlook running on your desktop, so I would imagine that emails sent would not appear in your Outbox. Having said that, if the emails are being sent using your email address, Outlook might see them in the Exchange server being sent from your address and make them appear in your Outbox, even thought they hadn't actually been sent from Outlook. Give it a go...
