"Haraka, a lightweight SMTP server focused on performance, simplicity and modularity. The Haraka mail server uses plugins built from Javascript to facilitate speed and modularity. The concept of plugins (modules) allows an administrator to implement only those plugins which are needed.

"Haraka is an interesting project which yields a lightweight fast mail server with some limitations, especially in terms of queuing. The installation is simple enough though several other dependencies must be installed. One of the biggest liabilities is that Haraka does not have adequate documentation. Getting simple plugins to work means guessing on how to make some aspects work as there is no information. And, since few people are using Haraka, the second big liability, it is tough finding answers and difficult estimating the real value of Haraka as a production option. On other hand, Haraka is a simple program that one can basically guess what the correct answers to problems are."
