postPHPix is a PHP interface to manage a mail subsystem based
on postfix, ldap and courier servers.
This project aims to be:
-secure [no system users]
-scalable [daemons intercommunicates via socket so can be splitted on many phisical servers for high traffic systems using eventually SSL encription]
-reliable [after splitting the daemons, you can get systems reduntant
using for example heartbeat clustering software, and the ldap database allow you to manage and backup user information quickly or realize a mail folder backup server easily]
-packageable [for many years I used Qmail, now I need more license flexibilty, so I decided to study and use Postfix, this architecture is the mail subsystem of the Argo GNU/Linux distribution that soon will be available as free software too]
A bigpicture explaining how the subsystem can work is available here:
