I need an SMTP server to be able to accept EMails. I have a custom written socket listener but wanted to use somethign more robust and less home grown. I wanted to try to get IIS to capture inbound SMTP messages and save them to disk so that i can use a service to read them from disk and parse them into a SQL DB.

Is it possible to get IIS to receive SMTP messages, and if so how (i came up at a loss using Google)?
