Common Lisp Webmail?

Postby smiles » Thu Aug 07, 2008 9:17 am

Hi! I'm looking for a web mail server written in common lisp. It could be using Hunchentoot or another CL webserver.

Thanks! Carlo

Hunchentoot is a web server.

For sending email, I haven't used it myself, but this library could help: http://www.cliki.net/CL-Sendmail

edit: If you're talking about an actual mail-server, I'm not sure about that one.

I'm sure he's talking about something like the hundreds of web frontends to POP3 or IMAP and SMTP servers that are written in PHP or perl or whatever, but in Common Lisp instead.

e.g.:
SquirrelMail
RoundCube
Horde IMP

I don't know of one, but perhaps mel-base could be used as part of the solution.

I don't believe there is one, as yet. I'm using Squirrelmail myself, and would love to switch to something lisp-based.

If you find (or write) one before I get around to writing mine, I'd love to hear about it :)
Mel-base and Hunchentoot do look like a good pair of pillars to start with, though, along with CL-WHO.
