can u pls guide me

or send me links to the tuts on making a smtp server in ruby

I actually started to do this. However, I discovered that while making a
basic SMTP server is pretty easy, making a GOOD SMTP server is an
enormous project. Aside from language speed limitations, there’s just a
ton of stuff to implement if you want your server to be robust against
attacks and high volume.

The bottom line is that no matter how complex postfix is to figure out,
you’re better off doing that than starting from scratch.

If you REALLY need to do it for some reason, I would suggest starting a
project and gathering other interested parties. Otherwise, you’ll
probably just end up kicking yourself when the project ultimately fails.

Without trying to be too much of a bastard:

You are highly unlikely to get a good answer because of the way you
asked the question. You are also asking in the from forum as Ruby on
Rails is mainly for web-application development and standalone SMTP
servers are not web-apps. You will also need to know the SMTP RFCs.
http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc821.html

It also helps to use proper English.

Coding an SMTP server from scratch is not an easy project and the way
you asked the question makes it look like you have no idea what you are
getting yourself into…
