Subject AW: [VOTE] Accept ESME into the Apache Incubator
Date Tue, 02 Dec 2008 07:59:51 GMT
That is a coincidence - I was looking at james last night (
in terms of a bridge for ESME. I liked the idea of mailets and was looking into the possibility
of using one to allow users to send an email to james and having a mailet create an ESME message
based on the contents of the email.

there is also the issue of creating a public record of the process
used to develop the product. for mailing lists, this is done through
the numerous archives maintained at apache and elsewhere.

it should be possible to bridge ESME to RFC822 mail (eg. by using
James) on a hudson zone (say). this is an area i'm very interested in
so if this is of interest to the ESME team and they haven't done it
already, i'd be glad to help out.
