Note: Defining routes is an advanced feature and is not necessary for the standard install. When no routes are defined, MailArchiva will archive everything. In most cases, this is what people want. Define routes only when you need MailArchiva to forward traffic.


The routing configuration specifies how MailArchiva will handle incoming traffic. Without any route, MailArchiva will automatically archive all data received from any connection. In the vast majority of cases, this default behaviour is all that is required. In the event that at least one route is defined, the default behaviour falls away.

As depicted below, when defining a route, it is possible to instruct MailArchiva to receive data on a particular connection, archive the data and then forward it on to another server. This is useful in architectures where data must be archived and then forwarded on for further processing. For instance, MailArchiva's High Availability configuration makes extensive use of the routing engine to forward traffic to redundant servers.
