Abstract

This paper introduces a method which can minimize the size of mail archive document. Separate the general mail document into several parts: mail basic properties (head field and content structure), plain text and attachment. Design a compressed archive Database framework for each part. The framework sets up mail list using XML schema for describing mail basic properties and inner content structure, compresses the text and compress-able attachments to reduce the size of mail archive document, stores the uncompress-able or unnecessary-compress attachments directly.
