More efficient MTA Pickup Event handling

Postby borbor » Wed Aug 28, 2002 10:34 pm

MailEnable's COM based architecture is very good BUT,
please implement some efficient approach to MTA Pickup Event
handling. Current approach is like using a CGI module, run and terminate.
This means we have to allocate resources each time.
Please implement some daemon (like ISAPI) approach to pickup event handling, so that we can allocate resources during initialization (like database connections) and use them in the Pickup events.

May be there are other efficient ways to integrate our custom email
handling with MailEnable, like writing custom Agents.
But I could not find any documents on this.

We hope to get some documentation for this soon. The pickup event was a basic method which allowed some scripting to be done, which is definitely cheaper and easier that writing your own service/plugin. There are other methods (such as the Anti-virus plugin uses) which are more efficient, but of course require a lot more development.
