I've graduated in July 1999 from The Moscow State University, Applied
Mathematics and Computer Science Department. In fact, I have a Degree
with Honor (aka Red Diploma if you translate this literally from Russian).
I was born and have spent all my years till graduation in Moscow,
Currently I am working for Isode
Ltd. I am enjoying my time with Isode and my new responsibilities.
I've moved my work history to a separate section, as it was getting
rather long. Click here if you are interested.
On December 3rd 2002 my father died from lung cancer at the age on
49. I wish we had more time together, as both of us were in still full
force, while being mature at the same time. We were very close and this
event will, no doubts, affect me.
I am an active participant of several Internet
Engineering Task Force (IETF) Working Groups since 1998, mainly in Applications Area and a little
bit in Security Area.
In particular, I currently have interest in (but not limited to):
I've previously participated in
- GSS-API/Kitten, Kerberos v5. Cybersafe and Heimdal distributions in
- Message Tracking
I am currently co-chairing SIEVE,
and UseFor Working Groups.
A list of different SIEVE capabilities for clients and servers can
be seen here
I've stopped listing all my RFCs, as I have published 21 so far. You
can use RFC editor website to
Internet Drafts (works in progress)
More or less up-to-date list of my documents can be found here
I've also participated in discussions of many other
documents. The most important are:

still missing the flexibility in choosing what to do that I had in
I was working for Epsylon Technologies
for almost 2 years, developing Baikonur Mail Server. Little money, but
good research environment.
I've left the country right after graduation and I've been wandering
around the world since. I've lived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada for 2
and a half years, working for MessagingDirect.

Most of my time with MessagingDirect I was working on M-Store.
M-Store is a multithreaded crossplatform highly scalable mail server
that supports IMAP4, POP3 and LMTP. Sendmail
BAMS server is based on M-Store.
