I have been researching this topic for a little while but wasn't too sure on how to approach this topic. Here is what I am trying to do; I want to create a mail server, either built-in to windows ( which hasn't been working) or a 3rd party mail server that I can easily manage. I want to be able to send a text message from my phone and have that text be received on my listening mail server and then from there can be interpreted however I deem necessary for the specific operation or task. I have seen mail scripts that can connect to a server, start listening, etc. But none seem to work well with what I have. Can anyone help me find a third party application like this and how to use code to login, and listen for text messages from my phone. I have some third party applications, but I am unsure how to make them work with my C++ code. All help is greatly appreciated.
