MailWatch is a program for analyzing mail traffic. As each message is received, Mailwatch records summary information about it. Later, it can generate a textual report, showing the number of posts during a time period, who the most prolific posters were, and what the most popular topics were. It is targeted at the end user who wishes to generate statistics for personal email or mailing lists.
Majordomo is a program which automates the management of Internet mailing lists. Commands are sent to Majordomo via electronic mail to handle all aspects of list maintainance. Once a list is set up virtually all operations can be performed remotely, requiring no intervention by the postmaster of the list site.
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.
