send and receive mails over my own server

7 posts in this topic

I try to build my own webserver:

As webserver I use abbys.

As sript-language I use autoit instead of PHP.

To reach my server from external I use dyndns.

I can reach my server without problems e.g. http://www.myserver.dyndns.org/

Now I want to send and receive mails over my own server, e.g. mailto://webmaster@myserver.dyndns.org :o

How to realize it with autoit? :)

You seriously thinking of building a POP3 and SMTP server with AutoIt3?

This is not a trivial task and I would opt for using one of the existing packages.

what packages? can you give me an example?

or do you mean UDFs for autoit?

I mean programs like Mercury/32 (www.pmail.com).

Can I realize "webmaster@myserver.dyndns.org" with Mercury/32 ?

Looks like you have some serious reading up to do on this subject. :)

When the specified domainname points to your IP address it will work given you have forwarded all required ports on the access router. (this is assuming you run your server on a private lan and not directly to a public IP address.)

OK, where can I find such a document? :)

My Webserver is behind a router, accessing the ports is not the problem :o
