I am a new c++ programmer that migrated from java. I'm glad i've finally found a "real" language.... Anyways... I have been trying to write a c++ program to send email using the smtp. I am not looking for code, i'm looking for a good resourse on the subject... I've become very frusturated searching the web and any of the c++ books i have fail to even mention sockets. Any pointers? My end product would need to be able to support the TLS feature of most modern mail servers..

Thanks for any help,
