How to integrate mailing system using codeigniter

I strongly recommend you take a look at open-source PHP mail handling applications such as SquirrelMail. They are complex, non-trivial applications that took years to build and mature. It is vastly easier to create a "private message" system as you don't have to interact with special protocols.

If you really want to use php to access email anyhow, Google for "php pop3", "php imap", etc. You will need to use these protcols to access email servers to check, receive, send, delete, etc.

There is no simple built-it-yourself email system, so if you just are looking for a fun easy project, this isn't really the way to go. If you just want users to send messages to each other I highly recommend instead using your own Private Message system and then just use mail() to email a copy to people to let them know they have a PM.
