--------------------------------------

Hi Benoit,

Thanks for the reply. I've had a look at your links.
So it looks like the following tasks are pending:

jSPF
- some more tests on the library
- tests for Mailets

jDKIM
- SMTP Handler + tests

DMARC
- complete jDMARC library + tests
- SMTP Handler, Mailets, tests

Is everything listed here is within the scope of Summer of Code? Are there existing design/architecture
plans for jDMARC? Do you expect a thorough architecture plan in the Proposal?

I've been going through the James, jSPF, jDKIM codebase and the Wiki pages trying to understand
everything and it's definitely quite daunting. My knowledge of email protocols is a bit hazy
from Networks class which I took 2 years ago, so I'm brushing up on that as well. How much
of an understanding of the codebase and email protocols are you looking for at the Proposal
stage?

Is there anything else I should look at? Do you have any other tips or expectations?

Thanks,
Shrumit

> 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
> * DMARC
> 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
