Open Source E-mail
Open Source E-Mail Client for Windows I used to like Thunderbird. A lot. But, now that I've lived with the Mozilla Foundation's Thunderbird e-mail client for a few months, my enthusiasm has waned. Now, my wife and daughter both still use and enjoy it, but there's a fundamental difference in how we approach e-mail clients. For them, basic e-mail functionality to handle a low volume of e-mail and the ability to deal with RSS (Really Simple Syndication) fees is all they need. In sum, a lightweight e-mail client will suffice. I, on the other hand, get hundreds of real messages a day and keep thousands of messages. And, for that kind of load, Thunderbird on XP just can't cut it.
hMailServer -Open source email hMailServer is a free, open source e-mail server for Microsoft Windows. It supports all the common e-mail protocols (IMAP, SMTP, POP3) and comes with an easy-to-use COM library that can be used for integration with other software. It also has supports for virtual domains, distribution lists, antivirus, antispam, aliases, distributed domains and much more. E-mail data is stored in a database s
erver, MySQL or MS SQL, depending on your choice. The hMailServer installation contains a minimal MySQL-installation, so if you don't already have a database server in your network, MySQL is installed automatically when you install hMailServer.
POPFile: Open Source E-Mail Solution POPFile is a program that has often been labeled as little more than a spam filtering software. In reality, POPFile is much more than this. The origins of POPFile are not really all that mysterious. It is an open source e-mail classification tool designed to give you more control over your preferred e-mail client and its own e-mail sorting options. The application is designed to work hand-in-hand with POP3 e-mail accounts; however, with new features being added all the time, this could change or evolve as the need arises.
Open source email clients The first electronic mail (email) message was sent between computers on a network in the early 1970s. It is doubtful whether any of the pioneers involved at this time had a real appreciation of how the use of email would eventually be taken up and widely adopted. In universities and businesses the world over email has become the preferred mode of communication often taking over from the telephone. Many users of email cite the fact that email provides a record of interactions, like a crude audit trail, as the most compelling reason for choosing it over the telephone. For others it is the ability to easily and efficiently deal with people in other time zones that brings the most benefit. An email client, or Mail User Agent (MUA), is a program that accesses email stored on a (usually) remote server and is used to send and receive email messages. In some organizations, the email client is a component of a larger groupware solution that integrates email with calendaring and group working tools.

Open Source E-mail Security Richard Blum's Open Source E-mail Security is poorly organized, rarely topical, and betrays the author's fundamental failure to understand the topic at hand. While some of the underlying technical material is useful and relevant, the author seldom supplies the details needed to proceed to a general understanding. The book is divided into three sections. The first section, "E-mail Principles", covers chapters one through six. Section two, "Server Security", covers chapters seven through thirteen. Section three, "E-mail Service Security", covers chapters fourteen through seventeen.

Need Better Open-Source E-Mail If open source is to continue gaining ground with the corporate desktop, it must develop not just an outstanding e-mail client, but an all-out replacement for Outlook on Windows. Outlook is a security-hole wolf dressed in an e-mail client's sheep clothing. But many companies still won't, or can't, move from it because Outlook is also their group calendaring and address book application. In short, it's a core desktop application for them. This point was driven home to me when I spoke recently at a meeting of CIOs, chief technology officers and e-mail administrators at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. These people run serious e-mail systems with hundreds of thousands of users.
Open Source Tools to Filter Email If you are a systems administrator, you know that mail servers worldwide are saturated by virus traffic. There are simple, powerful ways to add virus filtering to a Mac OS X Server-based mail server, in order to block, remove, or disable harmful content in incoming and outgoing email. Because Mac OS X Server is a UNIX-based system, there is a wealth of freely-available open-source software that you can download and use, including virus-filtering tools. Keeping your email clean of viruses is always a good idea, especially if you have a heterogeneous network-infected email can be passed through your server to infect machines running other operating systems. With the tools discussed in this article, keeping your email virus-free is easy, free and customizable.

What is DotNet Open Mail DotNetOpenMail is an open-source library written in C# for assembling and sending HTML and plain-text email with file attachments using Microsoft's .Net development framework.

DotNetOpenMail allows you to send email from applications which use Microsoft's .Net development framework, including asp. net, C# and Win Forms. It is a freely available open-source component written in C# that makes it easy to create HTML and plain text email with file attachments without needing the System.Web.Mail library.
Open Source Intelligence The Open Source movement has established over the last decade a new collaborative approach, uniquely adapted to the Internet, to developing high-quality informational products. Initially, its exclusive application was the development of software (GNU/Linux and Apache are among the most prominent projects), but increasingly we can observe this collaborative approach being applied to areas beyond the coding of software. One such area is the collaborative gathering and analysis of information, a practice we term "Open Source Intelligence". In this article, we use three case studies - the nettime mailing list, the Wikipedia project and the NoLogo Web site - to show some the breadth of contexts and analyze the variety of socio-technical approaches that make up this emerging phenomenon.
Open Source Enterprise Email to Apple Zimbra is a unified messaging platform (server and client) designed to better integrate search, archiving discovery, anti-spam and anti-virus/security features. Zimbra is based on many popular Open Source projects and standard technologies, including SOAP, AJAX and web services. Since we released the open source version in November 2005 we've been overwhelmed by the interest and feedback we received from Apple customers and Zimbra forum members . There was already clear demand for a Mac OS X version and since delivering the open source release, we've seen that demand explode, in the form of downloads, community participation, and requests from companies for our Network Edition.
KeePass Password Safe Today you need to remember many passwords. You need a password for the Windows network logon, your e-mail account, your homepage's ftp password, online passwords (like Code Project member account), etc. etc. etc. The list is endless. Also, you should use different passwords for each account. Because if you use only one password everywhere and someone gets this password you have a problem. A serious problem. The thief would have access to your e-mail account, homepage, etc. Unimaginable. KeePass is a free/open-
source password manager or safe which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key-disk. So you only have to remember one single master password or insert the key-disk to unlock the whole database.
Canadian Open Source Education and Research The email included a suggested outline for a March 2 event focused on copyright reform. It envisioned a meeting with the Canadian Heritage Deputy Minister Judith LaRoque, two hours of presentations from speakers sympathetic to CRIA's position, lunch with deputy ministers from Heritage, Industry, and International Trade, and a private meeting with the soon-to-be named Minister of Canadian Heritage. One month later, virtually the identical scenario played itself out in Canadian Heritage's Gatineau offices and in the private dining room of a swank nearby restaurant.
