Mail servers can be composed in about anything. Normally the greater ones (sendmail/exim) are c/c++ at the same time, you can essentially compose one in anything you pick. Its all an enormous content discussion in the event that you take a gander at how SMTP functions.



In spite of the fact that somebody may wish to utilize PHP for that, remember that certifiable mail server has significantly more things to do that simply listen to an association on a port. The primary issue it is a long running procedure and php was never planned no has inherent apparatuses for taking care of this errands. PHP was constantly implied for short-timed assignments like creating HTML page, transforming client data, and so on.
