Store-and-Forward (SAF) Agents

Column Display     Related Tasks     Related Topics

There are two sides involved in the process of storing and forwarding messages: a local sending side and a remote receiving endpoint. SAF agents are responsible for store-and-forwarding messages between these local sending and remote receiving endpoints. A SAF agent can be configured to have only sending capabilities, receiving capabilities, or both.

This page summarizes the SAF agents that have been created for this domain.
