Per la precisione :
Lurker is not just another mailing list archiver. It is capable of handling gigabytes of mail without slowing down. Lurker has been designed to scale to support sites with thousands of concurrent users and hundreds of new messages a second. If you run a high-volume mailing list archive, you should seriously consider lurker for this alone.
To facilitate finding interesting data, lurker supports:
* full keyword search by body, subject, author, …
* a graphical representation of message relationships
* charts of the current activity about a topic
* searching lists or queries around an estimated time
* signature verification to confirm the author
* messages markup to find related information
mairix is a program for indexing and searching email messages stored in Maildir (see the documentation section below), MH or mbox folders.
* Indexing is fast. It runs incrementally on new messages – any particular message only gets scanned once in the lifetime of the index file.
* The search mode populates a “virtual” maildir (or MH) folder with symlinks which point to the real messages. This folder can be opened as usual in your mail program. (Note, if messages are in mbox folders, copies are made. Similarly if the virtual folder has mbox format, it is filled with copies of the matched messages.)
* The search mode is very fast.
* Indexing and searching works on the basis of words. The index file tabulates which words occur in which parts (particular headers + body) of which messages.
Mairix rispetto a Lurker (e Zoe) ha un minor impatto sulle performance del server, ha però il grosso difetto dell’assenza di un webserver integrato il che impedisce la consultazione in remoto dei dati.
