A few weeks ago I decided I would like to try and write my own SMTP server in VB.NET – this would include the ability to receive SMTP messages from other SMTP servers, as well as being able to send emails via SMTP to any given email address.
I also decided that I would make this SMTP server class a completely free public download that other developers are free to use in their own applications as they wish. Upon completion of the first stable release version I will make the source code available on my web site as well. Updates on my progress with this project will be added to this blog on a regular basis, so watch this space.
The first post, which will provide details of how this class will work and what exactly it will do, should be up later today.
