    Few questions

    iwadasn Newbie


      This is basically asking for a short architectural overview. Some of this I dug up on the forums, but I would like a fairly detailed overview. Here's a little bit of a starting point......

      I take it that the mail services uses ejb-cmp in order to store all the actual data. IMAP support is planned, but not available yet (so I hear).

      Does the email server support attachments? Do these attachments get stored in the database, or does the system use one of those horrible hybrid db/file systems that leaves half the data on your app server and half of it in the database.

      Can the mail server integrate with one of the java webmail systems out there? Is there a plan to integrate it with http://sourceforge.net/projects/jwma at some point in the future?

      Is there a plugin architecture for spamasassin and similar modules?

          Have you checked out our wiki? That's where all the info is kept (and in the forums!)

          It is all stored in the database

          Web mail is planned. HOW has not been decided, but thanks for bringing up jwma

          It is planned. As Andy pointed out in some other thread, we need more users trying out JBoss Mail and demanding features for the project to go forward :-)
