Hi Everyone,

I want to create my own webmail on my own domain. I already have my server up and running, can somebody help me on what to prepare for this project? like what do i need? what's the requirements that kind of stuff. Is there a site that offers this kind of information? Any help or idea will surely be appreciated :)

By the way i want to use ASP 3.0 for this project since that's the one that i have licensed right now, i cant go to .NET right now i dont have money and time for an upgrade :)

Thanks/Regards
Sidney

Hi there,

First of all, .NET is a free download, if you own / run your own server. You can download the .NET framework from the Microsoft site and install it without charge.

Anyway, I think you'll need to take a look at the e-mail section of http://www.15seconds.com. They provide both links to components you'll need and articles that may give you more information.

Basically, here's what you need:

1. POP Component, capable of logging into a POP server and retrieving e-mails
2. Mail component, that will send the mail either directly or to another (relay) SMTP server.
3. ASP Pages that connect to a POP server, retrieving each message and generating an HTML page
4. ASP pages that allow you to create and send a new message using the mail component.

It't quite a bit of work and definitely too much to explain / describe here. Post more specific questions to these boards for more information on specific topics.

HtH

Hi there,

You may want to take a look at the Zaks Pop Component (http://www.zaks.demon.co.uk/code/cpts/pop/index.html)

It's a bit old, but it's free and it works fine from within classic ASP.

Cheers,

Imar
