Forum OpenACS Development: Response to webmail contributors

Posted by David Walker on
I had started looking at this type of project and the approach I liked was tcl
with a mime rendering piece written in C as an AOLServer module.  I
thought the messages should be in the filesystem using maildir format (if I
understand correctly this creates a single file per email) with selected headers
stored in the database by a script executed by the mail server.

I actually have a partially working version of the mime rendering piece using
the gmime library.  It crashes when I throw a load at it which I'm not sure if
that is my fault or gmime's but I suspect mine since I'm fairly inexperienced
at C programming.
