    You learn the SMTP protocol and sockets.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Well first i'd suggest learning how the emai lsystem works, IE SMTP <Simple mail transfer Protocol> work, as well as Winsocks <for windows> or the equivilant for Linux works and how to write code for it.

    'learn' will likely take a very, very long time if you don't have a lot of coding experience now.
    Away.

    If your not very experienced with C++ or working with libraries, then it'll probably take a while.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Thank you for Salem and Knutso. I am currently taking CSC 161 (C++ programming 2). When do you figure I could handle this?
