how to receive smtp mail?

3 posts in this topic

I'm sure I've seen a sample script on here somewhere, but I've searched all over and can't locate it now. There are lots of scripts that will send email - I don't want to send email, but receive it.

We have a business application that sends email status updates to an email address where someone manually stores the information received. Instead of this manual process I'd like to point the business application at my own smtp server that would receive and process the messages automatically as they arrive.

Does anyone recall an example script that will receive email?

I'm also in the same situation. I know noone has answered here, but did you find any answers on your own?

If you're running win2k+, why not run IIS and SMTP? Do you really need a standalone autoit solution for an smtp server? It's not impossible, just perhaps more effort than it's worth. I'm sure there's some win32 smtp apps out there if you don't want to / can't do IIS.
