    How can i have my own SMTP server.


    Hello. Greetings to all. I am working for an online marketing company MAP-IT Inc in New York. Our other fields of works are Graphic Designing and Web Development.

    Well after a short introduction lets come to the main point of my topic. That we want to get our own SMTP server. Where our customer will come to our website and he put his contact list and after filling of required form. They are able to send Newsletter. You can say the service like mail-chimp and other smtp service provider.

    The question is from where can i get the service of SMTP server. I have to buy it physically or just use the path of some company to whom i make a deal on internet?

    So kindly seniors help and guide me in this matter

    Thank you

    The built in IIS SMTP virtual server is easily configured, but first may need to be installed. To install from the Window OS Disc.
    1. Click Start> Control panel > Add/Remove Programs
    2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
    3. Find Internet information Services in the and check. Do Not uncheck any other option that are already installed.
    4. Double Click IIS and ensure that SMTP is checked, click OK.
    5. Click next and follow the prompts.
    Once IIS is installed:
    1. Click Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services.
    2. Expand the directory tree until the Default SMTP Virtual Server is listed.
    3. Highlight it, and click the Properties icon in the toolbar, or right mouse click and click properties to open the properties window.

    what have @seanbarrington have said is correct in case of Windows and this may cause the server to be used as a spam source .
    I recommend that you install mail server that provide authentication. This way you have two advantage:-
    1- You can send / receive using mail client or script
    2- You can authenticate users which considered as one of the methods for protecting your servers

    I don't know the exact details, but spammers do it all the time. They subscribe to a hosting service and use the web site to send email. The web page is usually completely blank.

    Here is a fresh example that came in this AM:
    1. 216.244.71.100 on port 48025|05:39:46
    1. EHLO secure.columnjournal.com
    1. MAIL FROM:<100Days@columnjournal.com> BODY=8BITMIME ENVID=420866
    1. RSET
    Spammer 216.244.71.100 Identified!|05:39:46
    1. QUIT
    1. Closed.|05:39:47
    Error 40020 in ConnectServer!|05:39:47

    "columnjournal.com" hosted by Namecheap.com
    Created June, 25, 2012
    Points to [216.244.71.100]
    MX points to [secure.columnjournal.com]
    which does not accept incoming connections (Error 40020)
    www.columnjournal.com points to [216.244.71.100]
    which is allocated to Wowrack.com and is listening on ports 25 & 80
    "columnjournal.com", www.columnjournal.com, & [216.244.71.100]
    all come up blank on a Web browser.

    Most Web Hosting companies offer the same services as the above; HTTP (port 80) & SMTP (port 25). So in answer to the original poster's question; Yes, it is done all the time (but don't ask me how).
