Description

Programmer's Guide to Internet Mail will help you create and manage network applications using powerful Internet mail, directory, and domain name protocols and standards. It succinctly explains from a programmer's perspective not simply the primary Internet mail protocols but also how to use other important network protocols such as LDAP and DNS vital to the creation of message-enabled applications. Readers will learn how these protocols and standards facilitate message submission, delivery and retrieval, support directory lookup, how they interoperate, and how they together create a framework for sophisticated networked applications.

Programmer's Guide to Internet Mail will help you select the right protocol, or combination of protocols, for a specific programming function. Written by an expert e-mail and messaging consultant from Compaq, this insightful book is loaded with sample code you can use to begin and accelerate application development.
