Microsoft® .NET Alerts is a message and notification routing service that makes delivering customer communications easy and helps avoid the negative perceptions associated with junk e-mail. Content providers can send messages to customers who choose to receive them. Alerts are routed to Microsoft Windows® desktops, cellular phones, wireless personal digital assistants (PDAs), or any e-mail address—all based on the customer's delivery preferences.

Getting Started
Follow these steps to get started with .NET Alerts:
Download both the .NET Alerts Software Development Kit (SDK) and the .NET Alerts Developer Edition. Read the SDK documentation that is included with the SDK to learn about implementing .NET Alerts. Using the included tools and emulators, you can start building .NET Alerts applications right away.
To participate in the .NET Alerts program as an alerts provider, you must request and sign a .NET Services Agreement (see Related Resources).
Get free support from .NET Alerts experts at the .NET Alerts Online Community.

.NET Alerts Software Development Kit (SDK)
The SDK provides several components that help you implement .NET Alerts on your Web site. These components include:

.NET Alerts Service Guide Kit Documentation—all the information you need to implement .NET Alerts.
.NET Alerts Client Library—a set of objects that simplify the creation and transmission of alerts.
Tools and samples that simplify development.

.NET Alerts Developer Edition
Microsoft .NET Alerts Developer Edition is a set of service emulators designed to work with the .NET Alerts SDK. These emulators enable developers to create and test .NET Alerts implementations locally, without interacting with the .NET Alerts Preproduction (PREP) servers. The .NET Alerts Developer Edition can also be used to create self-contained alerts demonstrations. The .NET Alerts Developer Edition includes a subscription mirroring emulator and a .NET Alerts routing engine and pop-up message emulator.

System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Linux, Solaris, Unix, Windows 2000 Service Pack 3, Windows XP

The Microsoft .NET Alerts protocol is based on XML and HTTP POST operations. Consequently, you can implement alerts with Linux, Solaris, or any other operating system that supports posting XML documents with HTTP POST operations.
The .NET Alerts Developer Edition 5.02 requires Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) version 5.0 or later, and Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.01 with Service Pack 2, or version 5.01 or later.

The .NET Alerts client library (msnotify.dll) requires a server running Microsoft® Windows® 2000 or Microsoft® Windows® XP.

For an optimal experience, the client computer should have either Microsoft® Windows® Messenger or MSN® Messenger installed.
