Abstract: In 2004 Jones (Jones, 2004) developed a software tool called GmailFS that turns GoogleTM Gmail into a two-gigabyte file folder in the personal computer. Such virtual folder is not just an interesting innovation but quite useful as a backup depot hosted remotely at Google. GmailFS is technically sound but relies critically on the hypertext scripts of Gmail web pages. Thus, it can be easily averted by the mail server administrator with minor changes of the html scripts or web topology. In this paper, we use another approach to achieve the same goal of GmailFS and extend the capability to accommodate all email servers rather than just Gmail. The proposed system is named ePFS that utilizes three primitive email protocols, i.e. SMTP and POP3/IMAP, to respectively store and retrieve the data in and from the e-mail servers. In addition, we enforce security features of user privacy, data confidentiality and error recovery in ePFS. The proposed system is a work in progress heading toward a p ersistent Internet storage for mobile applications. (More)
