I need to activate email notification on changes in the repository (on request by the developers, myself included). I have looked in the CVS documentation and I have found that the CVS standard way to notify me if someone commits a change to a file would be enough. What I need to do is set a "watch" on a file and then just wait. But of course I have to set up CVS-NT so that it is able to react on the watch if it triggers. First thing seems to be to edit the notify file and remove the comment on the last line. This should in theory activate email. But I have not found any clues so far as to *how* email is actually handled by CVS-NT. In our case we have a firewall protected network and there is a single mail server (Exchange 5.5) on one of the servers. It is protected by all kinds of restrictions and will not allow relaying of email. CVS-NT runs on an dedicated W2000 server, which is only running the CVS-NT service apart from whatever MS has put there in the server install. Oh yes, I have IIS5 running too so that I can have CVSWeb for browsing. But I assume that somehow CVS-NT must be told where to turn to in order to send email? So where and how do I configure the Exchange server name/IP and the mailserver login data in CVS-NT????
