MailBoxer is a lightweight ZOPE-Product to run mailinglists, newsletters and mailarchives. Its main idea is to give you an extensible framework for building mailinglist-based applications with the power of ZOPE. Out of the box it provides a full featured mailinglist/newsletter/mailarchiving-framework.
  • MailBoxer is easy to use and to configure and can handle mime-encoded mails with attachments.
  • People can subscribe/unsubscribe your list by sending an "signed" email with a specified email-subject (not body!!!) to the same address where the postings will go. No more hazzles with passwords and unsubscriptions.
  • You can customize and disable subscription and unsubscription.
  • All mailinglists can be run moderated, members only or public available.
  • Mails can be archived (even with attachments) by a combination of dates & threads with customizable set of headers.
  • User-friendly archive with powerful search-interface and a "one-thread-one-screen"-view with snipped signatures etc.
  • By defining a spamlist, dirty content or misconfigured vacation-notifications can be identified and will not be forwarded by MailBoxer.
  • MailBoxer can convert all mails to plain-text and strip of attachments if you have read enough HTML-Mails and useless attachments.
  • MailBoxer provides automatic bounce-detection and a management-interface for bounced addresses.
  • MailBoxer implements a sender-loop-limitation, so misconfigured vacation-mailser will not kill your server.
  • MailBoxer talks directly to your SMTP-Server. This is very fast compared using the standard MailHost.send-method (no more overhead for connecting & closing the channel every time you send a mail). This is fast enough for even large lists.
  • MailBoxer provides many hooks to integrate it into your own Zope-applications.
