How does Halon integrate into your email workflow?

Halon's scripting language (HSL) is a domain-specific language (DSL) designed specifically for email infrastructure. Together with the native plugin system, it enables configuration and customization of the email processing and delivery behavior in a programmable fashion. We also provide DevOps tooling and easy-to-use management interfaces for maximum adaptability to specific uses.
