Chapter 1. Email and Groupware: History and Basics

This book starts with a short history of email and related protocols. In this chapter, you will learn how email became a communication standard, what RFCs are, and where you can find the relevant ones. After a short glance on how email works, the related protocols: SMTP, POP, IMAP, and MAPI are explained in brief as well as LDAP, X500, MIME, and SOAP. An overview of the groupware market, including the various definitions of the latter by different vendors closes the chapter.
