Wanted: Mail Servers

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Deej on Monday, 05 Jul, 2004 @ 9:26 PM

I noticed a post on the OpenBeOS [now Haiku] mailing list where there might be some interest in @somethingHaiku email addresses.

I have looked into this before, and would be willing to set something up again, if there’s enough interest. I’ve previously done the math, and it’s not hard/expensive for small account sizes. The accounts won’t be big like yahoo or google, but I can give a minimum of 1mb accounts (POP), and email forwarding services at a very cheap price.

I would need a minimum of 20 people to pay for email (Webmail/POP) accounts (very reasonable yearly fees), or a whole lot of people interested in forwarding addresses at a lower yearly fee, to break even on server costs. Given enough interest, this could allow for any extra money to be donated to the Haiku organization.

If anyone is interested in this, email me (use a descriptive subject so it doesn’t get tossed with spam - put “I want email” in the subject or something). If I hit the 20 person mark (19, actually, I obviously would get one), then I will set up the mail server account and get a domain name.

Bits N

Just some bits n pieces from around:

BeDoper has uncovered the truth about the evil plans behind the OS we have all come to know and love. Check it out!

IsComputerOn caught some Cosmoe news concerning integration with Haiku’s appserver. Good to see Cosmoe still progressing forward!

beunited.org also posted the news on Cosmoe, as well as a progress update on another OSBOS project, BeFree, with a new site look and a new version of their Neptune API.

beunited.org also announced new additions to the developer portal, Clue and Javashare, donated by Jeff Braun and Bryan Varner respectively. I also have it on good word that restart_daemon, written by ex-Be employee Raymond Rodgers, will be added RSN.
