Ledmail is a small mail checking utility that utilises the keyboard LEDs (caps, num, and scroll lock) to indicate when new mail has arrived. The LEDs are made to flash in an answerphone-like manner to indicate the number of new messages that are present in given mail servers. Each LED can be given a separate list of mail servers to poll, and the total number of new messages on those servers will determine how many times the LED will flash. Errors in checking mail servers cause the LEDs to flash in an inverted state, or to stay on. Ledmail can check both POP3 and IMAP4 mail servers.
Mahogany is a GUI email client for the X11/Unix, Windows, and Mac platforms. It supports a wide range of Internet protocols (IMAP4, POP3, ESMTP, NNTP) and encrypted communications using SSL, includes full MIME support, and aims to be fully standard-compliant. It allows the use of unlimited number of servers, supports filters and identities, and offers optional HTML viewing and much more.
MH-sync is a small suite of command-line tools designed to allow an MH user to read mail offline by synchronizing a local set of MH folders with the "real" MH folders online at a remote site. Changes made using 'rmm' and 'refile' will be propagated back to the server site correctly without being affected by "folder -pack" or server-side message filing or removal. ssh is used as the transport, and no other ports need be open on the firewall.
The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one Internet application suite. It contains an Internet browser, email and newsgroup client with an included Web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat, and Web development tools, and is sure to appeal to advanced users, Web developers, and corporate users. It uses much of the Mozilla source code powering such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird, and Miro.
MUMail is a Java applet designed to let you read your mail from a web page. It enables you to check your mail when there is no mail reader available, or if you don't want to change the configuration of someone else's mail reader. All you need is a Java 1.1 compliant Web browser. MUMail uses POP3 to download mail and is MIME enabled.
Mutt is a small but very powerful text-based MIME mail client. It is highly configurable, and is well-suited to the mail power user with advanced features like key bindings, keyboard macros, mail threading, regular expression searches, and a powerful pattern matching language for selecting groups of messages.
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.
