pyMail Demo Backend is Back

High performance back-end for the pyMail app is now in CVS.

The new back-end requires a daemon process ( that runs a multi-threading Unix Domain Socket server that caches POP mailbox connections. It's all written in Python and was quite simple to develop (the SocketServer library rocks, too bad it's documentation doesn't). Hopefully this should give the pyMail app the serer-side speed it's been lacking for quite some time, augmenting the client-side usability with responsive request responses.
