Architecture of Mailinator

Paul Tyma wrote about how he designed my favorite free-mail site Mailinator.

Pretty interesting to see that the whole site is running in one JVM and doesn't even use a single other service like postfix, sendmail or whatever. Just Java.

The page is currently down, but you can find more of such services in's FAQ.

I'm looking for a new job. If you can recommend a company in Leipzig/Germany that's looking for a PHP developer, please drop me a mail.
