SQL makes it easy to search for single configuration items, and SQLite was chosen because it is a fast and light, and easy to program. The libEtPan!-library will be used to connect to mailfolders. Additionaly libEtPan! supports most email storge methods, remote and local, which makes it easy to support these in rupiapra too.
