Arrow is an elegant, powerful, graphical interface to electronic mail. This is not just another single window mail reader. Instead, it displays each mailbox and message in a separate window, thereby allowing one to simultaneously open as many mailboxes and view and compose as many messages as one wishes. This paradigm also allows one to drag-and-drop text between messages and organize ones mail by dragging messages between mailboxes.
Beonex Communicator is Mozilla polished for end users. It contains Navigator, Mailnews, Composer, and ChatZilla. Navigator has support for key web standards and a convenient interface. For example, it eases searching the Internet, similar to Apple's Sherlock on Macintosh. The Bookmark Manager can deal with huge collections of bookmarks and allows you to overview and sort them while you are surfing. If you want, you can track the latest headlines or webcams using the Sidebar. The Mailnews client supports multiple IMAP, POP3 and/or news accounts for each user, so you can download and manage all your email from various accounts in one place and store them on your computer or the server. Beonex puts a strong emphasis on security, privacy, and netiquette, to protect the private or confidential information on your computer and to encourage fairness.
BrowserExpress is a Web-based e-mail client. BrowserExpress provides a Web browser interface to any mail server, giving all your users Web-based e-mail from any Web browser. The BrowserExpress interface is fully customizable to support your branding, banner advertisements, and language choice. BrowserExpress implements POP3, SMTP, LDAP, and MIME standards.
This is a PHP class that attempts to validate a given e-mail address at three levels: matching the address against a RFC compliant regular expression, verifing 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.
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.
jwma is a Web mail implementation based on the JSP Model 2 architecture. It builds on standard Java APIs (Java Mail API, Java Server Pages, and Java Servlet API) and relies on some available open source technologies (Xerces, Castor, Jakarta-ORO). jwma is designed and implemented for use with an IMAP server. It allows complete control over the store (creating, deleting, and moving folders, mailboxes, and messages). It supports MIME messages, supports text/plain message processing (e.g. making plaintext URLs "clickable"), and supports automatic sent & read mail archiving. It features a trash mailbox, includes a small addressbook, allows simple configuration of its features, and can be used in parallel with other mail clients (like Pine or Eudora).
Heirloom mailx (formerly known as "nail") is derived from Berkeley Mail and provides the functionality of the System V and POSIX mailx commands. Additional features include support for MIME, IMAP (including caching and disconnected use), POP3, SMTP, S/MIME, international character sets, maildir folders, message threading, powerful search methods, scoring, and a Bayesian junk mail filter. Mailx can be used as a mail batch language in nearly the same way as it is used interactively. It can thus act as a mailbox filter, can fetch mail from remote accounts, and can send files as attachments.
Psmail is a set of Perl scripts that, when used together, are similar to using an email program. Messages are stored one-per-file in specified directories, and utilities are given to create template new messages (writing headers, etc), reply, read, and list messages with relevant info (i.e. #lines, subject, who from, etc.). As each file is a separate message, you can also write complex commandlines to conditionally handle files. Psmail doesn't handle MIME or multiple POP accounts (yet).
