ElasticInbox is open source, reliable, distributed, scalable email store. The goal of this project is to provide highly available email store without a single point of failure which can run on commodity hardware and scale linearly. ElasticInbox can easily scale to millions of mailboxes, with hundreds of thousands messages in each mailbox.

Perdition is a POP3, IMAP4 and managesieve proxy server. It is able to handle both plain-text and SSL/TLS encrypted connections, and redirect users to a real-server based on a database lookup. Perdition supports modular based database access. ODBC, MySQL, PostgreSQL, GDBM, POSIX Regular Expression and NIS modules ship with the distribution. The API for modules is open allowing arbitrary modules to be written to allow access to any data store. Perdition has many uses. Including, creating large mail systems where an end-user's mailbox may be stored on one of several hosts, integrating different mail systems together, migrating between different email infrastructures, and bridging plain-text and SSL/TLS services. It can also be used as part of a firewall. The use of perditon to scale mail services beyond a single box is discussed in high capacity email.

DMARC, which stands for "Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance", is a technical specification created by a group of organizations that want to help reduce the potential for email-based abuse by solving a couple of long-standing operational, deployment, and reporting issues related to email authentication protocols. [...] A DMARC policy allows a sender to indicate that their emails are protected by SPF and/or DKIM, and tells a receiver what to do if neither of those authentication methods passes - such as junk or reject the message. DMARC removes guesswork from the receiver's handling of these failed messages, limiting or eliminating the user's exposure to potentially fraudulent & harmful messages. DMARC also provides a way for the email receiver to report back to the sender about messages that pass and/or fail DMARC evaluation.

A very funny story about a man who has seen a problem and is prescribing a "solution" that is 100% wrong and the complete opposite of what needs to be done:

Thierry Breton, Atos’s 56-year-old chief executive officer who is a former French finance minister [...] pointed to a recent study by the business watchdog ORSE, which reads: ‘Reading useless messages is terrible for concentration, as it takes 64 seconds to get back on the ball after doing so. Poorly controlled, the e-mail can become a devastating tool.’

Mr Breton suggested that a real time messaging interface as available on sites like Facebook would be far preferable to email, with staff also encouraged to talk to each other in person.

So an email, that you can reply to at your leisure, wastes time, but an instant message, that calls for immediate attention, does not? Oookay then. As for Facebook, he must have added that for comic effect. Right? Right?

This class is the part of Mail::DKIM responsible for generating signatures for a given message. You create an object of this class, specifying the parameters of the signature you wish to create, or specifying a callback function so that the signature parameters can be determined later. Next, you feed it the entire message using "PRINT()", completing with "CLOSE()". Finally, use the "signatures()" method to access the generated signatures.

The Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an open standard specifying a technical method to prevent sender address forgery. More precisely, the current version of SPF — called SPFv1 or SPF Classic — protects the envelope sender address, which is used for the delivery of messages. See the box on the right for a quick explanation of the different types of sender addresses in e-mails.

Even more precisely, SPFv1 allows the owner of a domain to specify their mail sending policy, e.g. which mail servers they use to send mail from their domain. The technology requires two sides to play together: (1) the domain owner publishes this information in an SPF record in the domain's DNS zone, and when someone else's mail server receives a message claiming to come from that domain, then (2) the receiving server can check whether the message complies with the domain's stated policy. If, e.g., the message comes from an unknown server, it can be considered a fake.

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) lets an organization take responsibility for a message while it is in transit.

The organization is a handler of the message, either as its originator or as an intermediary. Their reputation is the basis for evaluating whether to trust the message for delivery. Technically DKIM provides a method for validating a domain name identity that is associated with a message through cryptographic authentication.

delatt: Delete attachments. delatt strips attachments from email, and can optionally save the attachments to files. It will work with either mbox or maildir files.

It's great for archiving old email without wasting space on attachments and the extra HTML message parts that some MUAs attach.
