Definition of: messaging system

Software that provides an electronic mail delivery system. It is made up of the following functional components, which may be packaged together or independently.

Mail User AgentThe mail user agent (MUA or UA) is the client e-mail program, such as Outlook, Eudora or Mac Mail, that submits and receives the message.

Message Transfer AgentThe message transfer agent (MTA) forwards the message to another mail server or delivers it to its own message store (MS). Sendmail is the most widely used MTA on the Internet. In a large enterprise, there may be several MTA servers (mail servers) dedicated to Internet e-mail while others support internal e-mail.

Message StoreThe message store (MS) holds the mail until it is selectively retrieved and deleted by an access server. In the Internet world, a delivery agent writes the messages from the MTA to the message store, and typical access servers are either POP or IMAP servers.

The Internet's SMTPInternet e-mail, the most ubiquitous messaging system in the world, is based on the SMTP protocol. Prior to the Internet's enormous growth in the late 1990s, numerous proprietary messaging systems were widely used, including cc:Mail, Microsoft Mail, PROFS and DISOSS.
