Virtualization of SMTP Server

Hi:

I want to virtualize a SMTP server. I wish to seek opinions on the best way to do it.

1. To keep all domains under one directory which will contain all mailboxes.
so /vol/space wil contain
                                       domain1
                                       domain2
                                       domain3
                                                    user1
                                                    user2
                                                    user3
So an smtp data procedure will write to these mailboxes and pop3 retrieve (RETR) procedure will retrieve from these mail boxes. Please let me know if this approach is correct. Can there be better way todo the same thing.

No extra design considerations - just stay away from QueryPerformanceCounter family of API because they cause major issues when running in a virtualized environment. Other than that just code as you like.

Hi Jkr:

C++ is implementation language on server side....any design considerations that need to be thought out.
