kopano - Kopano server overview.


Kopano is a full-featured e-mail and groupware solution, focused towards clients using the MAPI standard. The Kopano suite consists of the following parts:


The main server process, accepting client connections, and managing storage and retrieval of data from the database.


The outgoing e-mail spooler. This service makes sure that e-mails sent by clients are converted to internet e-mail and forwarded to an SMTP server.


The Kopano delivery agent is called by your MTA to deliver an incoming e-mail message into a user's inbox.


The admin program can be started from the command line to perform various administrational tasks such add creating users, and managing groups.


The monitor server process monitors user stores for quota limits. When a user goes over the warning quota level, kopano-monitor will issue a warning e-mail.


The gateway server process enables POP3 and/or IMAP connectivity to the storage server. Users with other non-Outlook or webaccess clients can still retrieve their e-mail from the server.


The passwd program can be started from the command line to update the user password when the server is running with dbplugin.


The fsck program can be started from the command line to check and possibly fix broken items in your calendar or tasks folder.


The backup tool creates an incremental dump of a store. The data can be restored by the same tool. This tool can be used as a brick-level-backup. From a performance point of view it might not make sense to be used as a disaster-recovery tool.


The iCal/CalDAV gateway enables users to retrieve their own Kopano calendar using the iCalendar standard.


A simple program that dumps some statistics the kopano-server program collects.


This program tests for common configuration errors for a given config file.


The kopano-search daemon is used to index all messages for all users in the kopano-server. Indexing messages greatly enhances the search performance of the kopano-server.
