Also, take a look at Hawkeye, this is an SMTP/POP3/SMTPRelay engine that uses
MySQL as a database.
There is a link from the MySQL Website.
This package is also a Web server, FTP server, and has a Chat engine too. But you can
choose which services you enable when you run it.
One point though, it stores the actual email bodies in files NOT in the database!
I have a set of modified sources which change this behaviour (it's a first pass for a
project that did not go any further, but it does work) if you want them (need to
check licensing issues first).
