A computer in a network that provides "post office" facilities. It stores incoming mail for distribution to users (message store) and forwards outgoing mail through the appropriate channel (message transfer agent). The term may refer to just the software that performs this service, which can reside on a machine with other applications or to a stand-alone computer dedicated only to the mail function. See messaging system and e-mail appliance.
