I've got some of a mail server sort of almost working, and I want to upload it to sourceforge just for the hell of it. But I'm stuck on one point -- what should I call it?
Any and all suggestions welcome.

Of course if you offer it to Jakarta then you must call it JMail. :roll:

Some of these ideas are great, but exist already in some form. Maybe I should try acronyms...
Does jVessel seem like a reasonable name?

Don't you feel adding 'j' to everything is slightly old fashioned? What about adding .ONE at the end, for example (working on previous suggestions),
MailServer.ONE
AlphaMail.ONE
or a simple Mail.ONE
or
DavidsSortOfWorkingMailServerProgram.ONE
Just kidding!

What about Latin?
Tabellarius: letter-carier, courier
Foedus Mail: foul, filthy; ugly; base, vile, abominable
I'm thinking Foedus Mail is brief, not already in use by any English-speaking person(s), and expresses the current state of the code.
