Filtering packets and detecting email messages
Posted on 2003-12-06
Hello, I am an intermediate c++ programmer. What I am looking to do is create a program that basically intercepts e-mail coming in, like a spam filter.
For example, say Microsoft Outlook (or any client) begins to check for new mail. I want to create a program that watches any packets coming in, and if those packets are part of an email, it will filter the email and either continue to pass the packets on to the email client, or dump them.
I really am not sure where to start, and I am looking for someone to point me in the right direction. Can this be done with any part of MFC? Help Help Help!
