    Bambuk,

    You might want to look at Net :: Server :: Mail in perl (had to space weird to keep from smilies!). It has all the functionality to listen on a socket and handle basic transactions, however there is some writing that you'd have to do.

    You can view CPAN's entry here:
    http://search.cpan.org/~rsoliv/Net-S...Server/Mail.pm

    Hope this helps!

    I'm curious what use you might have for such a server?

    I have an idea for a mail server that no spammer would dare sending mail to.

    I could use the help if anyone's interested.

    well I can only tell you that the server hopefully will become the new standard for
    sending emails around the web.

    If so, spammers will have a big problem.
    It doesn't scan the messages for spam...

    One problem is the majority of spam is sent by peoples computers that have been taken over my spammers.

    spammers nowdays never send stuff from their own computer.

    regarding people's computers sending spam. that is a shame, and the new mail server will kill all their disk space very soon.

    maybe that's a good thing, they will notice that something is wrong with their computer.

    Err, you're planning to hack computers belonging to innocent people and fill up hard disks ??

    If you're thinking about sending mail back to the source IP address think again, just because an MTA sends mail out doesn't mean it'll receive mail, infact I've never seen a compromised machine that would even respond to incoming SMTP traffic.

    ofcourse i'm not planning to hack computers belonging to innocent people and fill up hard disks.

    Also, I'm not trying to send mail back to the sending machine aswell.
    Infact, that is a good thing that a compromised machine cannot recieve mail.

    Be patient. I've only began.
