i want to make an information exchange interface for the employees within the organization so that they can send information to each other. its look n feel will be like an email server but exactly its not an email server.
There will be provision for sending bcc and cc so that same message can be send to different people in the organization. also the person who sends the message that message saves in the
sent items of its log in, also there is inbox for receiving messages. but all these details will go in one table in the database with the from name, to name, date and there is provision for uploading any file , and that file location will show in the database table.

so basically its type of email server but not exaclty email server as we are not sending the mail outside and is not using SMTP.

Thank You

Ok, so what exactly is your question about this?

You can make a webapp using servlets which has pages where you can look in your inbox, read and write messages etc. You'll want to use a database to store the messages.

1. DO NOT try to decide on a framework or write any code at this point

2. Get a realllly big whiteboard or lots and lots of paper and start diagramming use cases / data flow / any other way to visualize the system.

3. Try to explain the results to potential users

4. IF - users understand and say "thats what we want" - maybe your boss signs off on it - THEN look for suitable technoloby
ELSE - blank stares or similar reaction - back to 2.
