Hi,

It is a knowledge base question. I just want to know if someone would like to run an e-mail service on his site what are the requirement of that? i.e. same like hotmail or yahoo. Is there a special server required? Or any software must be available on the server to do that?

Thank you.

if you want to develop you own system:

You need a mail server to run pop and smtp services.

Then you just need to use cfmail and cfpop to develop the front end.

or download/buy a premade system from Macromedia's Developer exchange.

CJ,

Do you know any site which provides me and e-mail server. For example I have my site hosted on a different server but that server doesn't provide such system. I like to know a site which give me this system and the user will have an e-mail acount like someone@mysite.com.

Thank you for your help

Your hosting site doesn't provide smtp or pop mail services?

Usually your hosting service should be the one providing this.. I am not sure of third party sites doing this for you.

yes.

upto 50.

email account creation will be manual (probably)

But they can access their accounts using the same pop server and use the same smtp server as given to you.

Usually it is mail.yourdomainname.com.

Now you can provide them web based accessing using the mail server given to you and logging them into their accounts (that you create for them)

yes.. it is limited by 50 if that is your hosting limit. but usually you can buy more.. now if you want to have thousands of accounts.. its probably better to get another host or find a dedicated hosting package.. where you have full control of the mail server.
