Hi,

I have a couple of design questions really...

Obviously you would want to store your emails in a database, inbox table,
outbox table etc...

Which database is most commonly used among today's email programs?
Obviously databases like MySQL is out of the questions due to the
installation of the server to get it working, using Access seems like a
rather big security risk, yet, how important is security?

How would you store email account information?

And lastly, as I've worked with MySQL, Access and MSSQL I would like
something which uses the SQL language, has free BCB 6.0 components, and does
not require the installation of any database tools to work.

Thanks!

Lars
