SharePoint has an API to send Emails.


  • Will I be able to send & receive messages in a List using the API ?

  • You need to configure the incoming mail settings in Central Admin before you can receive messages. Sending emails from list items can be done from a standard Workflow in SharePoint Designer, or from the API within Visual Studio Workflows or even Event Receivers, depending on your requirements.

I am using the ArgoSoft POP3 server. It is very lightweight and is doing a really good job. You can find it here : ArgoSoft Website.
