Deliver is a program for reliable and flexible local mail delivery. It's a perfect adjunct to your mail transport agent of choice (such as Sendmail or qmail). You can use it to kill spam, drop messages from specific senders, add a [LISTNAME] prefix to the subjects of messages that are delivered through mailing lists, and lots more.
getmail is intended as a simple, secure, and reliable replacement for fetchmail. It retrieves email (either all messages, or only unread messages) from one or more POP3, SPDS, or IMAP4 servers (with or without SSL) for one or more email accounts, and reliably delivers into qmail-style Maildirs, mboxrd files, or through external MDAs (command deliveries) specified on a per-account basis. getmail also has excellent support for domain (multidrop) mailboxes, including delivering messages to different users or destinations based on the envelope recipient address.
XamimeLT is an email scanner which encapsulates your existing sendmail or Postfix server setup. It scans both incoming and outgoing email. It can scan for email viruses, unwanted file types (eg. EXE, BMP, MPEG) and file names (eg. prettypark.exe), spam, and almost anything you care to search for in an email. It can also be used to scan for text snippets within emails and to insert disclaimers into outbound emails. XamimeLT was formerly known as "Inflex".
Whoson (WHO iS ONline) is a proposed Internet protocol that allows Internet server programs know if a particular (dynamically allocated) IP address is currently allocated to a known (trusted) user and, optionally, the identity of the said user. The protocol could be used by an SMTP Message Transfer System in conjunction with anti-spam-relaying filters to implement a scheme similar to the one described here to allow roaming customers use their "home" SMTP server to submit email while connected from a "foreign" network.
perl-esmtpd is an antispam, antivirus, and authenticating SMTP daemon. It integrates with qmail, sendmail, stunnel, etc. It's simple Perl, so you can hack it to suit your needs. It supports RBLs, mx on from, bounce evil phrases, virus scanning, etc. It offers: RBL-sytle black-hole DNS checking when not relaying, verification of valid MX records for the MAIL FROM (when not relayin, the ability to use Stunnel for smtps connections and still do RBL checks etc., simple authentication (i.e. PLAIN or LOGIN) for offsite users, and the ability to reject email with certain key phrases. Many other useful features are included.
The Header and Envelope rewrite mini-HOWTO explains how to rewrite your from address differently in the mail header and the mail envelope. This may be necessary, for example, if your ISP requires you to send mail with one address, but you are subscribed to mailing lists with a different address, or want others to see a forwarding address instead of your ISP's address.
