And  if  you  are  looking for a SMTP/IMAP/POP3 server only (I mean no
extra modules like webmail client interface, stats analysis module...)
I  do like opensource hMailServer that can also be controlled thru COM



>> Currently setup is with Unix client machine running batch

ARMSL> So a non-Windows application is relaying email via a non-ICS windows
ARMSL> SMTP relay server, which is so badly designed it's seen a source of
ARMSL> spam? 

ARMSL> seems like you need a better Windows mail server, try SmarterMail which
ARMSL> is what I use on my public server.  For sending email with a single
ARMSL> domain, it would be free.  You may want to investigate it's concurrent
ARMSL> connections first, but it includes numerous anti-spam methods so I
ARMSL> expect it similarly avoids being seen as a spam source. It can be used

ARMSL> You may be able to create something similar with the ICS SmtpServer
ARMSL> component and MailQueue, ideally we need a Pop3Server as well and that
ARMSL> would make a complete mail server (with a lot of file processing in the
ARMSL> middle).  But that is a major project, particularly the spam checking
ARMSL> side of it.  It's on my very long term wish list, but not sure I'll
ARMSL> ever manage it, meanwhile I make do with SmarterMail.
