Sure. By reading up on the various alternatives for sending email from client to client (via server), reading the protocols (check The Internet FAQs, which has an archive of internet RFCs) and deciding which meet your needs. The rest is gravy.

But that''s assuming you have to actually build new software. All you really need are an SMTP daemon, a text processing tool and a bunch of scripts for it (ie Perl/PHP/awk/sed/etc and some version/variant of smtpd).

Good luck.
