4.1 The basic setup

In designing ezmlm, Dan J. Bernstein has used the unix philosophy of small component programs with limited and well defined functions. Requests for specific functions can then be met by the addition of new programs.

Thanks to the program execution mechanism Dan built into qmail, it is easy to execute several small programs per delivery in a defined sequence. It is also very easy to add shell scripts for further customization.
