kopano - Kopano server overview.
Kopano is a full-featured e-mail and groupware solution, focused towards clients
using the MAPI standard. The Kopano suite consists of the following parts:
The main server process, accepting client
connections, and managing storage and retrieval of data from the
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 Kopano 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,
kopano-monitor will issue a warning e-mail.
The gateway server process enables POP3 and/or
IMAP connectivity to the storage server. Users with other non-Outlook or
webaccess clients can still retrieve 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
The fsck program can be started from the
command line to check and possibly fix broken items in your calendar or tasks
The backup tool creates an incremental dump of
a store. The data can be restored by the same tool. This tool can be used as a
brick-level-backup. From a performance point of view it might not make sense
to be used as a disaster-recovery tool.
The iCal/CalDAV gateway enables users to
retrieve their own Kopano calendar using the iCalendar standard.
A simple program that dumps some statistics
the kopano-server program collects.
This program tests for common configuration
errors for a given config file.
The kopano-search daemon is used to index all
messages for all users in the kopano-server. Indexing messages greatly
enhances the search performance of the kopano-server.
