Build an archiving server

Email Servers
16 Comments1 Solution902 ViewsLast Modified:
I would like to build an email server whose sole purpose it is to receive a message, log it to a database, and then forward it onto the destination server.

The reason is that i would like to be able to retrieve / re-deliver emails when someone loses them, if the server goes down, or otherwise.

I am thinking this can be done with Postfix and sendmail. Any thoughts?
