I wanted to run it on system tray and if I shutdown the server ,forexample, it'll send a mail to certain places.
it doesnt matter what kind of mail it'll send, but I have to know if it's possible with c++ and how it is done.
please help me with that.

sending a mail from a c program is easy..

take a look at the MAPISendMail function.. I can give you an example source that sends a short mail.
