I am trying to develop an application to receive messages on SMTP. I assume this would be an SMTP server.

Is there any API for this purpose that I can use and distribute? Any sample codes for receiving messages on SMTP?

Does the Apache "James" project include an SMTP service, or just POP/IMAP?



Otherwise, have you tried Googling? I'm kind of out of date, I only know of the classic old C-code based open source SMTP servers, e.g. "sendmail" (www.sendmail.org) and "queuemail" (www.queuemail.org).



I think basic SMTP is fairly simple, but parts of can ESMTP get more complicated, and you'd be laughed off the net if you only accepted SMTP and not ESMTP these days ....

SMTP is for SENDING mail, not for receiving mail. You got POP or IMAP for that.
