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.
