Mail system for distributed network – A. Zakharchenko

Mail system for distributed network. Presentation held by Andrey Zakharchenko at AsiaBSDCon2009:

Sometimes it is necessary to organize a mail domain for large and geographically distributed network, which may consist of independent subnets with their own separate Internet connections (and some of those connections may be not very good, or not very fast, or not very cheap). But users of the network need mail system, and it should be fast, convenient, and reliable.

In this paper some ways of distributed mail domain implementation are discussed, and a new one is introduced. The new method allows us to implement distributed mail system fast and convenient for end users, convenient for administrators, using network traffic sparingly, and reliable enough (at least without single point of failure).
