For use with POP3
This is primarily an efficiency/scalability feature. The bodies of mails can now be directly streamed into the DB.
Databases have differing levels of blob support, therefore we provide a number of implementations of the mail store and the installer will select the appropriate one for your database.
PagedStore - This is designed to be a generic implementation that will work with all databases. It works by spliting up large objects and writing them as seperate rows (pages) in the database.
Hypersonic - a simple DB to get you started and test with. We do not recommend it for production mail servers.
MySQL - MySQL for general usage tends to have better performance than PostgreSQL, but does not have great blob support. We prefer PostgreSQL until MySQL's blob support improves.
PostgreSQLStore - PostgreSQL supplies their own non-standard LargeObjectAPI. This store works directly with that API.
PostgreSQL - Using the LargeObjectAPI gives the best performance for storing mail bodies.
JDBC3Store - Uses a JDBC3 Blob to store data. Few databases have good support for JDBC3 blobs.
Oracle - Currently the only database tested with JDBC3 blobs, ensure that you use the latest drivers from Oracle or third parties.
