|Latest commercial e-mail interfaces (namely Google Mail and Inbox) have shifted the view of end-user e-mail processing: Classical folder-based, IMAP-like workflows seem obsolete when compared to instant server-side full-text search in thousands of e-mails, tag-based mail organization and easy connection to time-management features. Current possibilities of the users to run such interfaces on own trusted infrastructure without using closed-source commercial software are limited.
The thesis aims to evaluate the methods of general full-text indexing together with its application to e-mail processing, and to implement a modern e-mail interface that the users can run on-premises and that can be integrated with mail-processing infrastructure of current UNIX systems. The software will use a recent open-source text-search engine to provide the indexing functionality, and a browser-based front-end framework to create the user interface.
