Using, and creating, rulesets for Windows is difficult so most people just drive the command or a bat file from Trap Settings. Since there's no ruleset editor most folks have to create them on UNIX first and then modify them with Wordpad on Windows. The you have to start nvcord with that rule active. And since Windows does not have an actionsvr process, the ruleset would use an in-line action run by nvcord himself, something like this,
TrapSettings ==> In-line action

This would be suicide on UNIX because nvcorrd is right in the middle of the event flow in the UNIX architecture, but on Windows, he 's optional. He only sees the traps after they have been stored in the ODBC database.

NetView for Windows provides the nvmail command so you can send mail to an SMTP server, or you can do it yourself with Perl. Either way you usually have to write a script of some sort and if your ruleset is not more complicated than what I showed above, then you might as well just run it as a hidden command by trapd.

Are you having problems with nvmail?
