I need to write a project description for Eng. students that will be doing their thesis here at Sydney Univ. beginning in June. As we did last year I would like them to learn about web development and OACS is the best community to contribute their work.
One of the projects would be porting or integrating a webmail package into OACS.
Last year I started this thread, with interesting responses from many of you.
At that point there seemed to be an agreement about dumping the old webmail from ACS since it ws in Java and Oracle only, and with bad UI. TAlli and others proposed writing it in Python, since the language already has many of the functionalities.
I would prefer using perl and I have found perlWebmail and neomail but not tested them. They don't use a RDBMS
What does people think?
