DBMail

DBMail

DBmail is the name of a group of programs that enable the possiblilty of storing and retrieving mail messages from a database. Currently MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite can be used as database backends.

DBMail is made up of several components. A normal MTA (Postfix, Sendmailqmail, Exim) is used for accepting messages. The MTA hands the messages over to dbmail-smtp, using a pipe interface, or dbmail-lmtpd, using LMTP (Local Mail Transport Protocol). These programs take care of delivering the message into the database. Messages can be retreived from the database using dbmail-pop3d, using the POP3 protocol, and dbmail-imapd, using the IMAP4Rev1 protocol.

The whole email is stored in the database. That includes attachments. The DBMail programs do not have to touch the filesystem to retreive or insert emails. User information is also stored in the database, so users do not need an account on the machines DBMail is running on.

Selected Reviews:

Features include:

  • Enables you to create mailboxes without the need of system users
  • Mail is more effeciently stored and therefore it can be inserted an retrieved much faster dan any regular system (DBMail is currently able to retrieve aproximately 250 mail messages per second)
  • Expandable. A database is much easier to access than a flat file or a Maildir
  • Scalable. You can run the dbmail programs on different servers talking to the same database (cluster)
  • Using an event-driven multi-threaded architecture and database connection pooling supporting many connected clients simultaneously is no longer an issue
  • More secure. There's no need to maintain system users or write to the filesystem. All this is done through the database
  • IPv6 support
  • Native SSL/TLS support
  • PostgreSQL 9 support
