Mail Transport Agent. Unlike an MTC, the MTA actually handles sending and receiving the email to and from the system it is based upon. Most MTAs support aliasing and forwarding, as well as either the POP or IMAP protocols for clients which do not have standard MTA support upon their computer. MTAs which support POP and/or IMAP are referred to as mailhosts, and often support other functions. At UCI, MTAs are used to accept mail from the network and the outside world, then forward the mail to specific places. Mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org goes through campus MTAs for translation to delivery points, and actual delivery.
