Topic: Design and Implementation of Highly Scalable E-mail Systems
Details fundamental flaws in the current mailbox-per-user paradigm of
standard off-the-shelf Local Delivery
Agent software. It will describe how they can be scaled up to handle
many more users, how virtually all synchronous metadata and file locking
can be eliminated, how storage requirements can be reduced to grow at a
rate less than O(n), and how various services can be broken out and
handled by multiple separate servers.
