An interesting integration...

Dear All,
Any idea on how to solve this little brain teaser without having a seriestype solution?
Integrate[Exp[(a^2 x^2)/2] Erf[k x], {x,y,Infinity}]
where a and k are real, y takes values from Infinity to +Infinity, but is generally within +/3.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and replies can also be emailed to: Prof. D. J. Whitehouse, djw@eng.warwick.ac.uk or to my address.
Best regards,
Dr. Henri M.A. Winand
P.S. If you wish to propagate this to other mathtype newsgroups, etc., feel free to do so...both the handandpaper and Mathematica solutions will not give us what we want (i.e. an exact sol. without series).
