Hi, some time ago i get the idea to develop a new server by scratch. Im tired of using bogus/big software when i just need a smtp/pop3 server.
I started developing that some days agos and i have 0.0000001 pregamma version running on 188.8.131.52. It dont relay cause the code to send mails is still "disconnected" from the database, so, its 100% secure
I like to know if some of you can bomb it a few.. i need to know how many connections can manage before crash.
The idea is to build a SMTP/POP3/DNS/Light HTTP server on a single program, using a SQL database behind to keep the data (yes, account, servers name, logs, even the emails!), it could be slower, but as the server is fast enough (i dont need lots of useless validations) i believe it could make it, plus if you need more power you can add a new server and create a cluster on seconds.
Ok, ill be making changes to the server but my idea is to keep it working 48/72 hours to test it.
While i was writting this i remember i left some security code inside the .exe file.. so i must recompile it
please, any comment will be usefull !!!
