This paper describes the incorporation of Universal Unique Identifiers (UUIDs) into the database design for a children’s email application. Implementation of the new design is described including the mechanism for sharing data between installations using an IMAP based email server. Testing of the software has demonstrated that the design results in a functional distributed application although there remains scope for improving the synchronization algorithm. The Mifrenz application is available from for download.
