Yukatan webmail

This is the main web site of the Yukatan webmail project. The goal of the project is to create an advanced webmail system, that uses a relational database backend to provide efficient search and classification capabilities.

The project is currently in pre-alpha state. The underlying data model has just reached 1.0 status, and a couple of utility tools are under active development.

Please see the SourceForge project page for latest news and information about CVS access. Please contact me (Jukka Zitting, the main/only developer) at jukka@zitting.name if you want to know more about the Yukatan webmail project.

Yukatan components

The Yukatan webmail system is developed as a collection of independent components based on a central data model. The currently existing components are listed below.

Yukatan data model

The Yukatan webmail system is based on a relational data model of email messages. The data model has just reached 1.0 status. Please see the Yukatan data model page for more information.
