I'm quite a bit further along in my update of Postfix Enabler. It's going to include :

a) IPv6 support for UW's POP and IMAP
b) Fetchmail support
c) a way to specify RBL sites
d) alternate port numbers for SMTP
e) enforce SSL for both SMTP client and server communications
f) unlimited mailbox sizes (because with Fetchmail the mailbox can get big)
g) and, a way to list and manage the mail queue

plus maybe a few other things, like Postfix's virtual table so that we can at least provide some support for virtual domains and virtual users.

Still no support for maildirs, I'm afraid. That will need another round of updates to see if there is life beyond UW/IMAP.

I'm thinking of calling it MailServe to get a better handle on what this project is trying to do. I'm thinking of pricing it at 19.99, with current Postfix Enabler users being able to upgrade for 9.99? Pricing is such an art. Right now, I'm deep in the bowels, programming that beast - so further thought on this will have to wait. But I did want to do both art and science, didn't I? So, I shouldn't be complaining. It's been a good life.
