    Arrow SMTP service to receive incoming SMTP mail?


    hi,

    Need to setup a SMTP server within my C# server application to be able to receive incoming email message from other email exchange server.

    we have so far figured out that we can config the server to automatically store the received mail to some local folder,
    then we need to read the mail from that location
    the problem now is: how can we be notified when there is new mail??!!

    IIS comes with the SMTP service.

    Q: Can this service be configured to receive incoming SMTP mail message ?

    help wd be greatly appreciated!!!
    ThanksSS!

    SMTP is to send mail, not receive.

    I have heard IIS6 has a POP3 server included.

    Made me look. Windows 2003 comes with POP3, I guess it's not integrated with IIS SMTP.
