SmartSign is a set of modules which allow integration of smartcard technology into an OpenCA based Public Key Infrastructure in order to provide smartcard-based digital signature and local authentication security services. It allows direct signing of e-mail and e-news from within Netscape using smartcards and supports signing of generic files from command line. The package includes a PAM module too, which allows system administrators to integrate smartcard-based authentication for local users. A modified version of the OpenSSH client allows secure authentication to a remote server. A couple of command line tools allow signing and verifying generic files from the shell. Finally, a command line interactive shell supports all operations on the card, and can be used to write scripts that automate particular tasks on the card. Currently only Schlumberger Cyberflex Access 16K is supported.
tkbiff allows arbitrary commands to be executed upon mail reception. If you like programs such as xbiff and xbiff++ but wish they were more flexible, then you'll like tkbiff. Unlike other biffs, tkbiff is fully customizable. tkbiff also doesn't waste your valuable screen space with icons; instead, it shows you the mail itself. It supports UNIX, Mac, and Windows, IMAP, POP, and UNIX-style mail files, and SSL and APOP.
XCmail is a MIME and multi POP3 capable mailtool for X11 using the Xclasses X11 layout library. Its main purpose is to read and write mail, allowing any kind of data to be attached. It can handle MIME types, has helpers to show different types, and can encode and decode binary data into ASCII to allow it to be transported as mail over the Internet. It has many built-in functions such as 2 vCards, unlimited POP3 servers, SMTP, SMTP after POP3, SMTP-AUTH (RFC2554), addressbook, encoders, filters, a special spam filter, spell checker, xface, and a new "virtual folder" concept. It also uses external programs to enhance its feature set. XCmail can be extended through a plugin interface.
smtpsend is a simple SMTP client to transmit an email message to an SMTP server. It is designed for use by programs that need a simple, flexible way to send email, or for experimenting with SMTP. In many cases, sendmail can do what this program does, but it is much more complex, harder to set up and use, and doesn't give you as much lower level control. This program is written in Perl and is based on Perl's Net::SMTP module. It makes a great starting point for writing SMTP client functions into your own Perl program.
