Subject [ANNOUNCE] James Server 3.0-M1 released
Date Mon, 01 Nov 2010 06:05:52 GMT
The Java Apache Mail Enterprise Server (a.k.a. Apache James) Project
is happy to announce the release of version 3.0-M1 (Milestone 1) of
the Apache James server.

The Apache James Server is a 100% pure Java enterprise mail server
based on open protocols. Currently supported are SMTP/LMTP, POP3,
IMAP4 protocols together with several different storage solutions
(relational database via JPA and JDBC, File system with MailDir, JCR
Content Repsitory).

The James server also serves as a mail application platform. It hosts
the Apache Mailet API, and acts has a Mailet container. This feature
makes it easy to design, write, and deploy custom applications for
mail processing. This modularity and ease of customization is one of
James' strengths, and can allow administrators to produce powerful
applications surprisingly easily.

Features for that version include enhancements to nearly every area of
functionality, including full IMAP support, improved mailing list
capabilities, fastfail support, SMTP API for developing own fastfail
filters and the next revision of the Mailet API.

This was an exciting time in James development and we thank all contributors.

We are still actively looking for eager, capable developers to
contribute to James. If you're interesting in contributing to the
James project, please subscribe to the James mailing lists.
