There's already some code about these features in James but we would be sure people interested into James email hosting can configure this protocols easily and that implementations are compatible with most big email providers out there.

The James team has a strong focus on testing because email is a serious matter and you would not want to loose user's emails, so we will explain how to work on these tasks with the right testing strategy and tools.
Finally, this project should conclude with a well-written asciidoc documentation about how one should deploy james with security features configured
