I received a request to change the email address that the admin receives status messages at for Win Server 2003 R2.

Where is this address defined.  No Exchange being run.

    What kind of messages ?
    Could be a batch in the Scheduled Tasks

    This is on Windows 2008 but it can be don on 2003 with a batch.

    Did you set this server up? Is it possible there is some type of application is installed? check add and remove programs for an app that might be doing this.   As stated above the only other way is batch files.

    Ok so there is no central place like for notification of event log errors or something where an email address is entered for admin notification?

    It would be some application or something right?
