    Abstract

    The qmail software package is a widely used Internet-mail transfer agent that has been covered by a security guarantee since 1997. In this paper, the qmail author reviews the history and security-relevant architecture of qmail; articulates partitioning standards that qmail fails to meet; analyzes the engineering that has allowed qmail to survive this failure; and draws various conclusions regarding the future of secure programming.
