This is a PHP class that attempts to validate a given e-mail address at four levels: matching the address against a RFC compliant regular expression; checking whitelists and blacklists of domains with typing mistakes, disposable email addresses, and temporary and fake domains; verifying the existence of the destination SMTP server by verifying the respective DNS MX record; and connecting to that server to see if the given address is accepted as a valid recipient. The class also features a debugging output option that lets you see the remote SMTP server connection and data exchange dialog to see the real cause why an apparently valid address may not be accepting messages.
Email Security through Procmail (the Procmail Sanitizer) provides methods to sanitize email, removing obvious exploit attempts and disabling the channels through which exploits are delivered. Facilities for detecting and blocking Trojan Horse exploits and worms are also provided.
email2sms is a filter written in Perl which converts an e-mail into a form suitable for sending as an SMS message. Its main advantage over the alternatives is that it uses the CPAN module Lingua::EN::Squeeze to compress the text down to as little as 40% of its original size, so you can get much more of your e-mail into the 160 character limit imposed by SMS. It is fully MIME compatible, and has many configurable options, including removal of quoted text. Ideal for use with procmail. A Perl script for sending the output to a typical e-mail to SMS web gateway is included.
EnBug is useful for when you have to fix a DOS or Windows machine with no or broken networking, and no CD or no available media (and in my case, neither terminal program would upload with [XYZ]modem). Use a terminal program to dial into a box with a shell account, use lynx or wget to fetch EnBug and the required files, EnBug them and log/capture the output to the local disk (lack of 8-bit-clean is fine), run debug, redirecting input from the captured text file. Debug then re-creates the original files. Large files are split and must be recombined with COPY /B 1file+2file+3file file.
MailMan is one of the most stable, mature, and robust Web-based email systems available. The overall goal of the system is to provide the simplest possible way to add a Web-based email system to any Web site, so ease of installation and maintenance was the first goal in MailMan's design. It has no dependencies and no known incompatibilities with any Web server or mail server. It supports sending and receiving attachments, a single-frame or multi-frame interface, HTML-formatted messages, user options, address books, mail folders, and more.
