    JBoss as web mail server

    Ilia Chipitsine Newbie

      Dear Sirs,

      we are redesigning our web portal with Java technologies, and we are going to deploy web mail service.

      can JBoss mail server do that ?

      1) high load (50,000-100,000 mailboxes)
      2) antivirus support
      3) callback smtp checking (something like milter-sender)
      4) Java API for managing smtp/pop3 things and users.

      Cheers,
      Ilia Chipitsine

          We have not yet tested with that level of load.
          We do not yet implemented antivirus checkers
          I am not sure about #3. (what is that?)
          #4 is available depending on which user repos you are using.

            #3 is the situation when

            1) You are sending letter to me
            2) my smtp server sees, Uh-huh! letter seems to be From: acoliver@jboss.org
            3) my smtp server opens outgoing smtp connection to mx handler of jboss.org and does a liitle conversation:

            %telnet jboss.com.mail1.psmtp.com 25
            Trying 64.18.4.10...
            Connected to jboss.com.mail1.psmtp.com.
            Escape character is '^]'.
            220 Postini ESMTP 117 y6_1_0c7 ready. CA Business and Professions Code Section
            17538.45 forbids use of this system for unsolicited electronic mail advertisemen
            ts.
            helo paramon.ru
            250 Postini says hello back
            mail from:<>
            250 Ok
            rcpt to:acoliver@jboss.org
            250 Ok


            as far as envelope-from appears to be valid, so, my smtp server say "ok" to incoming mal.

            known implementation of smtp callback checking is milter-sender:

              No we don't. I'm not sure its useful anyhow. Most spam I get says its from a valid domain. Now it would be possible (theoretically) to use the header to check that the ip indeed belonged to that host but no way you're achieving #1 if you do that and I'm sure it would block certain types of legitimately relayed mail (internal corporate SMTP->ISP SMTP where the internal is not accessible from the outside).
