zarafa - Zarafa server overview.


Zarafa is a full-featured e-mail and groupware solution, focused towards clients using the MAPI standard. The Zarafa 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 Zarafa 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, zarafa-monitor will issue a warning e-mail.


The gateway server process enables POP3 and/or IMAP connectivity to the Zarafa server. Users with other non-Outlook or webaccess clients can still retreive 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 zarafa-restore tool. This tool can be used as a brick-level-backup. It can not be used as a disaster-recovery tool.


The restore tool reads data from a backup create by zarafa-backup. You can restore single items or folders. To restore a complete store, you can use the example script found in /usr/share/zarafa/zarafa-backup-helpers.


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


The zarafa-licensed daemon is used for licensing query information from non-free parts of the zarafa product. You must run this daemon if you wish to use non-free components of the zarafa product, like access from Windows environments.


A reporting program used by zarafa-licensed to send license reports to the zarafa-server using a secured connection.


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


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


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


The Zarafa Web Services server process enables EWS connectivity to the Zarafa server. Users with other non-Windows Outlook or WebApp clients can still retreive their e-mail and calendars from the server.
