I've got it done, but was a bit shy about putting it online in midweek. With a scripted mass mailer like the notification system is, the potential disaster scenarios numerous.
It's the toughest set of routines for me to work on since, I can't emulate the online environment (no sendmail equiv for winders). It has to be 99% right the first time. The days of being able to tweak stuff on the fly are gone.
I think I'll do it 4-5am my time tomorrow and see how it goes.

i think i read in the activestate perl documentation (last year's version) that there is at least one 3rd party sendmail module for perl on windows systems. a quick check of the latest version online now appears to say that sendmail is included in activeperl. i've stickymailed you the URL.
you could also install the Blat module and use that for sending email from perl on windows. when you have tested offline, you can change the couple of lines of blat for a couple of lines to call sendmail instead.

Thanks. I have switched to smtp for just this purpose.

I don't get email notification any more.

This isn't some Y2.2K problem is it? ;)

I guess if I would have looked here first I wouldn't have tried various things to troubleshoot my email notification. :)

We had a more pressing (do or die) problem that had to be addressed first: [webmasterworld.com...]
Getting that worked out was a major change. We've grown so much this fall that it crept up faster than I'd planned. The last week of Nov, we did more in a day, than we'd done in a weeks time in August. I had to deal with some very time consuming core things asap to stay online.
E is next on list...
