Smail is a Mail Transport Agent. Its job is to accept mail messages from sources on the local machine, or from remote hosts, and deliver those messages to the appropriate destinations, be they to remote hosts or to files or programs on the local machine. Smail is designed to be mostly compatible with sendmail but uses a much simpler configuration scheme.

A new release will soon be available with some important fixes and changes. If you are interested in testing the prerelease, please see the project web site for details. Thanks!
Release Notes: This is a major update fixing reported security problems and fixing may other bugs big and small.
Release Notes: This release deals solely with a problem in a minor change in the previous release which unexpectedly resulted in sender addresses being truncated to just their mailbox part.
Release Notes: This release is primarily a bugfix and clean-up release. It also includes a first cut at message arrival and delivery delay accounting. This release further adapts the makefiles to be portable between all major variants of make in use on modern systems while at the same time still supporting useful developer and maintainer features such as automated dependency tracking.
Release Notes: This release fixes a major botch that was made in the host domain name RE parsing and matching code. The checkerr utility script now automatically recognizes and registers all non-local double-bounce original senders in the dead-mail.senders database so that future messages from these addresses will not accumulate in the error queue.
Release Notes: This is a minor bugfix and minor release update. Handling of regular expressions for host domain name lists is now more consistent, and their associated messages may now make use of sub-string substitution in the same way as in content filters. Duplicate HELO reject records are suppressed from the log file. The log analysis utility has been further improved. Networks and hosts that are clients only and that should not send fake bounces can now be specified.
