2. Requirements

Here is our list of requrements. Some of these are brought to us through the power of 20/20 hindsight, some of these we knew from the get go.

The Requirements List

For Keith, the important item was fitting into how he already did his e-mail (using procmail and mutt with maildir mailboxes.) For Dave, the important items were IMAP and procmail support. Both of us thought web access would be a huge plus for when we couldn't use our mail reader of choice. Both had other domains they were asked to host for friends and family, but they didn't want to give out shell access.

A goal we had given ourselves was Universal Mail Availability. With local support, IMAP support, and web support we were sure to reach that goal.
