Yes, it needs to be implemented in the server.  I started writing it 
some time ago, but never got round to completing it.  I submitted a test 

Which application uses mailslots?  I only ever found one real 
application that used them, and that was "Declan's Korean Dictionary" 
from [1].

If you're interested, I can send you what I wrote.  It's probably very 
out of date by now though.
