How to communicate with a mail server through a web application

Postby Cinthia65 » Mon Apr 22, 2019 5:08 am

I am really unfamiliar with mail servers in general so please excuse my ignorance.

I need to be able to administer a mail server through my Spring-based web application. By administer, I mean creating mail accounts for new users, listening for incoming updates from those users, deleting accounts, when user accounts are deleted, etc, etc, etc.

I assume that mail servers (at least the good ones) provide some sort of a service API (SOAP, REST, it doesn't matter) through which an application can hook, and make changes. However, i am really unfamiliar with regards to what the good open-source servers out there are, and what options they provide.

I will be glad if someone, could propose a solution.
