Integration alongwith MTA !!!

Postby honeydharam » Mon Jan 28, 2008 4:23 pm

Hello,

I need to develop an application in .Net which can possibly be fired when a email comes in - which would basically mean - that I need MTA integration !!!

What I intend to do is:

someone sends a mail to abc@domain.com / def@domain.com (catch all would be enabled) Now - as soon as the mail comes in - if abc is a valid ID in an external database - I would retrieve the message and store the mail in the database and trigger some basic events.

Any idea - whether I could use MailEnable to do MTA Integration and write some script so that can be called when a mail comes in !!!

How stable would que handling be in such a scenario !!!!

Regards,
Ani

This can be done very easy. Just write your code and call it via the MTA.

There is a entry on the property page where you can specify the program you and to call as each email passes through the MTA.

Put a hook in the MTA agent.

if you want to understand what is happening the most simple way is to disable and enable your SMTP and POP3 connections and then insert emails into the system so they sit in the MTA queue.

You will dfind there are two components, the first beign the control file and the second being the email.
