DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A WEB BASED E-MAIL SYSTEM


Content

ABSTRACT

An e-mail address identifies an email box messages to which e-mail messages may be delivered. Most e-mail addresses use SMTP (simple mail transfer protocol which is an internet standard RFC (request for comment). The part before the @sing is the local – part of the domain name to which mail message are forwarded to e.g. (jidejob). The Domain name system is looked up to as a search finder of the mail transfer agent or mail exchangers (MXS) accepting e-mail for that address.

The domain may have sensitive meaning for any mail system handling the address; the meaning is well defined any changes in meaning involve changing every mail server in existence. The local – part, by contrast is supposed to be opaque to every mail system except the system which is authoritative for the domain, these is what makes the e-mail a federated system.

As a result of this project, it is envisaged that a mail must have a HEADER and a BODY that comprises of the information conveyed from a reference domain to a recipient.

The use of ASPNET has brought about the birth of this project, it is a web application developed and marketed by Microsoft to help programmer build dynamic web application and websites that are more user friendly and also contain great functionalities for animation and other advance displayer properties.

CHAPTER ONE

1.0    INTRODUCTION

There were a variety of ways to send an e-mail from a webpage using ASP.NET. One of the component is CDONTS (Collaborative Dara Object for NT Server), but there were also a number of other available e-mailing components. The .NET Framework contains two classes to assist with sending e-mail. The first class, MailMessage, defines the various properties of the e-mail message itself, such as the e-mail message body, the sender, the receiver, the subject, the priority, and so on. The second class, SmtpMail. performs the work of actually sending the e-mail message. To send e-mails through an ASP.NET page, there is need to have the SMTP Service installed on the Web server. This is a standard^ installation option when installing US on Windows N'T 4.0 or Windows installers.

 

1.1   STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

One of the most current ways of communication in this new age is electronic mail systems. This affords communication without any form of distance barrier. It only requires a form of connection on the internet through websites. However, there are relatively few e-mail service providers. The most common of these are Yahoomail, hotmail, Gmail to mention but a few. This research work is aimed at creating a personalized form of e-mail system 'on a company's website. The website is expected to be able to achieve the same function that is being performed by the aforementioned websites.

 

1.2 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

1.      To design a customer friendly website for a company

2.      To establish a server connection that allows e-mail system to work on the website designed

3.      To create a e-mail system that allows messages carrying the companys name to be sent from the website

4.      To make sure that the e-mail system has most of the properties of the common e-mail system

5.      To show the benefits of such e-mail systems to the company

 

1.3   SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This research work will create easy communication within and outside company. The study will be useful to every organization by showing an improvement on the current level of communication in the organization. Most especially is the external communication with the customers of the organization.  Also, the project will  create  a  special  awareness  of the company to the general public as a company that take communication as an important aspect of their business.

 

1.4   SCOPE OF THE STUDY

This research study will focus on building a website that contains e-mail system for Jyde Group of company. In order to achieve this, the system server will be configured to permits sending of electronic messages within websites on the system. Some properties of common e-mail system that permit effective messaging will be included. SMTP of ASP.NET will be used to achieve the set objectives
