Actually, I wasn't trying to get the contents of the file. Sorry for the 
ambiguity in my post.

When users are logged into our intranet, I want them to be able to goto 
our webmail address and be logged in automatically. Right now, when you 
click on our webmail link, MS Exchange asks for the username/password 
combo. I wanted to make this connection seamless in PHP which would 
already take their logged in username/password and send this to MS 
Exchange so they could see their mail without logging in again.

Looks like this won't work though, unless of course I'm implementing it 
wrong. Thanks!
