By just looking at the IP address, you can't say whether that box is
Windows or Linux or whatever. But doing a portscan can reveal it. For
instance, you can use nmap with OS detect switch (-O). This is usually
done by TCP/IP fingerprinting. This will work out for major OSs.
A portscan of my PC (Runs Windows 2000) gave...
# nmap -sS -PT -PI -O -T 3 praveenk.xxx.xxxxxxx.com
Starting nmap V. 3.00 ( www.insecure.org/nmap )
Interesting ports on praveenk.xxx.xxxxxxx.com (10.1.152.33):
(The 1594 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)

21/tcp open ftp

139/tcp open netbios-ssn
445/tcp open microsoft-ds

6000/tcp open X11
Remote operating system guess: Windows Millennium Edition (Me), Win
2000, or WinXP
Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 17 seconds

Wow. Email client war :-) I've trouble connecting to the SMTP server
using Gnus, otherwise could have joined with the Emacs pitch :-)
Regarding Outlook-to-mbox, this HOWTO might be useful:
Question: anyone know how to do SMTP AUTH with Gnus?
sigs waste bandwidth.
