Dialing-in to a server for pop3/smtp mail access

By akshay.amb ·
I am using a data logger with basic GSM data modem (with Circuit-Switched-Data SIM card) for remote data transmission. It requires dial-up access to a server with pop3/smtp mail access to send data and receive settings to / from specified mail ids. I want to host the dial-in server on an office PC with modem and phone line connected. It is running winxp pro, and on LAN. Is it possible to offer pop3/smtp mail access to the dial-in client over such a setup, using RAS?

Kindly guide me on this.

My problem exactly...

I am able to dial in to my PC dial up modem from the GSM modem on the data logger. The GSM modem then needs access to a SMTP / POP3 server over this connection. So I figured I will share my ADSL connection (always connected) with the dial-up network between the GSM modem and my PC. This should allow mail access to any device dialing in to my PC.
Can anyone guide me on this? Or is it better to host a SMTP/POP3 server on my PC?
