WebMail is a www-frontend to IMAP/POP3 mailboxes. You can compare it to the systems Hotmail, YahooMail etc use.
Here are some key features of "WebMail":
· gives a user complete access to his POP3 or IMAP mailboxes via an easy-to-use web interface
· runs as Java Servlet (and Servlet 2.2 WebApp)
· pluggable services (IMAP, POP3, ...) through the Java Mail API
· configurable look'n'feel through templates
· user configurable mailboxes: each folder may be on a different IMAP host
· sophisticated folder support
· support for multiple languages
· MIME support: images, html- and textfiles are shown via the webbrowser (configurable), all other files may be downloaded with a click
· fancy mail formatting: link highlighting, umlaut conversion, "smiley-substitution"
· Very fast compared to CGI scripts
· Modular concept with plugin support
· Easy administration (webinterface) and installation
· Java 1.1.6 or better - seethe Java Section on Java issues
· About 20 megs of RAM (minimum) plus additional 80 megs on high load servers (these are just recommendations, WebMail will run on any Java-capable server; if you have less than 32 MB RAM, you should try to adjust the settings in the startup script called webmail.sh/webmail.bat)
· Using a JIT ("just in time compiler") is greatly recommended! The Solaris and Windows JDKs from Sun use a JIT by default (sunwjit). On Linux, the Sun/Blackdown JDK uses a JIT, however it is not very fast, so you could profit from using a JIT like tya. The IBM Linux JDK 1.1.8 comes with a very fast JIT (actually the fastest Java platform available)
