    Standard C++ has no answer to this question. Standard C++ has no method of
    detecting how many applications are running or sending emails. You are
    confusing the facilities that your operating system provides with the
    facilities that a language provides. Providing your language of choice gives
    you good access to the underlying operating system you can do whatever the
    operating system can do.

    In short you need to ask this on a Windows programming group, not a C++
    language group. Try news:comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32 for instance.
