Mark's "Cracking Open the Post Office: Microsoft's SMTP Server in Detail" talk, now available in audio CD format
Mark Minasi here —
The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is the engine that makes
Internet e-mail run -- send mail to email@example.com and it's SMTP
that does most of the heavy lifting. That's why NT 4, Windows 2000, XP
and 2003 have all included a fairly powerful IIS SMTP service. As a
matter of fact, it's the tool that Exchange uses to handle your Internet
e-mail. It's also the application that Server 2003's built-in
e-mail server is built on. (Remember, with Server 2003, you can
actually set up an entire e-mail server without needing Exchange at all.
Sure, it's really basic e-mail server, but the price is right.
Try to find a lot of documentation on how to make it sit up and do
tricks, and you'll find very few resources; this talk helps fill in that
I hope you'll choose to pick up a copy of this presentation. I've tried to make learning about SMTP server easy to follow, informative, and a bit of fun.
