    - Visual Basic (For Programing)
    - ASP Email (for Producing Email Files)

    Web Servers Installed with
    - Same Asp Email (for Sending the mails)

    Process
    - Using VB Application and Sql Server, some set of Email files (Time Stamped) are produced at the Local Server (DateWise)

    - After that Email Files are transferred to the Web Server manually

    There are a lot of email apps for Linux, including the default "sendmail". There are web servers, sql database servers (MySql, Postgres, Oracle, etc), and many programming tools including BASIC. However, it won't support VBA - that is a Windows-only situation. For web-enabled apps, there are a lot of good scripting languages like javascript, jsp, python, php, and the like that will work well with the Apache web servers.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
