    Arrow HowTO:SMTP server receive mail - HELP!!


    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.

    How can we do this in .NET/C#?

    right now, we have 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??

    help wd be greatly appreciated!!!
    ThanksSS!

    Smile Ideas here..


    hi..

    got some ideas for the notification bit.

    1. Use event sinks


    2. Use FileSystemWatcher to check for new files appearing in the standard SMTP Drop folder.
