|Why use a
P7 Message Store? Getting X.400 messages to and from end-users
The goal of this paper is to give an understanding of what an X.400 Message Store, such as Isode’s M-Store X.400 does, and where and how it should be used. In order to do this, the paper looks at general requirements for sending and receiving (X.400) messages, and looks at various approaches that can be taken.

|Why X.400 is
good for high reliability messaging
X.400 was specified in the 1980s, with the expectation that it would be the universal standard for email. While this did not happen, X.400 is still used for many applications, particularly where high reliability is required. This paper summarizes the key features of X.400 that make it good for applications needing high reliability, with particular focus on capabilities not available with Internet email.

Reliable Message Transport using X.400
For many commercial and personal applications, Internet mail is sufficiently reliable to be trusted and treated as if it were 100% reliable. For some applications, such as aviation, military, and key government communications this is not good enough. This paper looks at what is needed to provide highly reliable message transport: reliably taking a message from its originator and delivering to the recipient(s).

|SNMP and Isode Servers
This white paper looks at the role of SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) in managing systems using Isode messaging and directory servers. It explains why SNMP support is provided, the sub-agent architecture used by Isode products, and approaches to deploying SNMP monitoring.

|Operational Monitoring and
Control of Systems using Isode Servers
Isode server products are deployed in a wide variety of situations, and usually there is a high service reliance placed on them. Isode’s approach to server design and management is that the products are building blocks, with maximum use of open standard protocols for interconnection. Management is almost entirely client/server. This combination of building block + client/server means that the approach to operational management needs to be considered as part of the overall system design. This paper explains the approach Isode has taken and the options provided, that can be used to build an operational system.

|Isode Management Architecture:
Client/Server and Directory
Isode's core business is messaging and directory servers. Isode products are designed for service oriented environments, such as ISPs, military, government and aviation. These are environments where there are stringent management requirements. This white paper sets out the approaches that Isode takes to address management requirements.
