This project is a derive of Mailsomething. The intention is to create
a general purpose mailapi which can be used in different contexts - on a thick client, in
webapps, to build a mailserver, etc. The idea of this project is not new and
inventive - the primary drive for it is to exercise making a functional
The api defines a generic mailaccount/mailbox/message relationship which allows
for different implementations. Where standard client implementations of Pop3,
Imap, and Nntp will be available. Theres also work on a simple pop3 server using
the mailbox/message implementations.
Work progressSome of
the work is allready done, regarding different protocols Pop3, Imap, general
maildecoding/-encoding. Imediate tasks is to design the api to allow
different forms of persistence, and make a clear seperation between design and
implementation. Optimization of existing code like different protocol
implementations and message decoding/encoding is a continuasly work in progress.
