MDaemon's SMTP Work Flow

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

When an incoming SMTP connection is made, MDaemon goes through a complex series of processing steps to determine whether to accept the message for delivery, and what to do with it once it is accepted. The following chart is a graphical representation of this work flow for inbound SMTP messages.

The extent to which these steps are executed is dependent upon your particular configuration. One or more steps might be skipped if a given feature is disabled in your configuration.
