Please view the attached zip file for complete details. ====================================================== SMTP filter specifications Objective: Create a SMTP filter to filter/suppress messages for relaying through mail server. Description: I am trying to get a junk filter developed for my organization. The program should listen on a configurable port (25 in most cases). It should work as a filter between the sender and the mail server. Based upon rules, it should either drop the connection, accept the message, modify the sender info, or save the questionable messages on the disk. The good filtered messages should be passed on to the SMTP server.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
MS Windows 2000/XP. Technologies Used: 1. Should be developed in VB 6.0 or above, or C++. 2. Use of MS access 2000 is okay, if used with MDAC 2.7. 3. Use of a third party socket component is okay, though not very desirable. Used components should have royalty free distribution (Example: Mabry). I will reimburse $75 separately for any components purchased for this development.
## Deadline information
In addition to the technologies used to develop the product, you must be familiar with SMTP protocol and SMTP authentication. General awareness in developing junk mail filters is a plus. I am looking for the program to be fast, reliable, and efficient (If program eats up all the memory or CPU on my server, that is not good). I will sacrifice some features over performance. This is an important project, I prefer someone who has worked on past RAC projects with positive feedback.
