Jump to user comments
messaging (MTA, Mail Transport Agent) The program
responsible for delivering e-mail messages. Upon receiving
a message from a Mail User Agent or another MTA it stores it
temporarily locally and analyses the recipients and either
delivers it (local addressee) or forwards it to another MTA
(routing). In either case it may edit and/or add to the
message headers.
