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.
Install-Sendmail will configure Sendmail and Fetchmail on your machine. This Perl script can be used to setup a mail server for a simple network or it can configure email on a dial up machine. All you need to know is your email address, login name and password and optionally, the IP addresses of your network.
eXtremail manager is a PHP-based SMTP/POP server manager, specifically for the eXtremail server. It offers the server admin many ways to monitor server activity, and add, edit, or delete users and domains. It also allows the main admin to specify admins per domain, which allows those "mini-admins" to administer their own domains, and none of the other ones.
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.

PHP Mobile Mail is aimed at mobile professionals who want to use their favorite MUAs (noteably pine or mutt) on their laptop, either in UNIX or Windows (under GNU Gygwin). This lets you work offline. It includes a mail_spooler program, which accepts the output of you MUA and spools (on, or offline). When connected, another process parses through the spool and sends your messages. It is also designed to "fake" using your REAL email address with free services like gmx.net, or mail.yahoo.com, when using their POP and SMTP servers, assuming you have a domain and account that you can control to this degree.
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.
