Subject [jira] [Commented] (JAMES-1933) James should implement all protocols that secure email delivery on the web
Date Mon, 27 Mar 2017 03:57:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1933?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15942605#comment-15942605

Shrumit Mehta commented on JAMES-1933:

Hi Matthieu,

I've tried building James on a Ubuntu 16.04 Virtualbox VM but the Maven build fails because
of out-of-memory problems. I'm going to install Ubuntu as dual boot in the coming days (and
upgrade my RAM eventually).

For the time being, could you point me to a similar protocol implementation in the codebase?
I am highly interested in this project and potentially crafting a Proposal for it. The idea
of reading RFCs and producing well-tested implementations sounds appealing to me.

I am an undergraduate Computer Science student at the University of Western Ontario just finishing
my 4th year (coming back for a 5th to finish a major in Genetics). I have experience with
Java in an academic setting for about 6 years and I have also written Java in my Summer of
Code project last year.

>             Project: James Server
>          Issue Type: Task

> James aims at becoming a leading email solution in the next few years.
> For that to become real, we need to ensure all protocols related to email delivery security
are well implemented.
> Today, the protocols are (at least) :
> * SPF
> * DKIM
> There's already some code about these features in James but we would be sure people interested
into James email hosting can configure this protocols easily and that implementations are
compatible with most big email providers out there.
> To handle this project, the student have to know enough java to manage James codebase
and be confortable in reading RFC and dissecting protocols.
> The James team has a strong focus on testing because email is a serious matter and you
would not want to loose user's emails, so we will explain how to work on these tasks with
the right testing strategy and tools.
> Finally, this project should conclude with a well-written asciidoc documentation about
how one should deploy james with security features configured
