    dude.. I'm capable to write my own code(s).. But I never write programs in API.
    so i just want to know that
    Is it Possible to create a SMTP server as well as Mailing Facility in a single C program ??
    And
    From where Should I start in order to do So.. ???? because i never write Code in API and in network programming using C.!!!

    If you are capable of writing your own code why are you pestering us about it?
    Go, write your code...

    As I told you in the first reply ... Yes it is entirely possible.

    Where should you start?
    Well, first you need to learn C programming.
    Then you need to learn about the Windows Internet API and Winsock.
    From there you need to look up the RFCs for SMTP and POP3 and follow the RFCs to create your final project. ...

    You know... the same thing the rest of us would do... except we would do it without wasting an entire Forum's time repeatedly asking the same childlike questions and ignoring the answers.

    Well now that you've got a compiler that will generate Win32 code

    1. Read this to find out how to use sockets in general
    Beej's Guide to Network Programming

    2. Then read this to find out how to talk "smtp"
    RFC 821 - Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (RFC821)

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Generally it means working with the Windows Application Programming Interface, rather than using some higher level language which tends to hide native windows calls.
