ZMailer is an internet message transfer agent. It is intended for gateways or mail servers or other large site environments that have extreme demands on the abilities of the mailer. It was motivated by the problems of the Sendmail design in such situations. It is intended and designed as a multi-protocol mailer. The only protocol supported in this distribution is RFC822 (and variations).
PMilter implements Sendmail's "milter" mail filtering protocol in Perl, allowing scripts direct access to the SMTP transaction in progress, rather than filtering later. It can function as a drop-in replacement for Sendmail::Milter, though PMilter does not require threads or the "libmilter" API to be available.
Vacation is a Horde module for managing user email "vacation notices" or "auto-responders." It works via a local vacation program and the .forward style forwarding mechanism supported by several popular mailers. Currently, it provides fairly complete support for managing .forward style vacation notices on Sendmail or Courier mail based systems via an FTP transport. It also has some support for LDAP, Qmail, and Exim SQL based servers.
libsrs2 is the next generation SRS library. SPF verifies that the Sender address of an email message matches (according to some policy) the client IP address that submitted it. When a message is forwarded, the sender address must be rewritten to comply with SPF policy. The Sender Rewriting Scheme, or SRS, provides a standard for this rewriting that is not vulnerable to attacks by spammers, is easy to parse by common mail filters, and handles multiple hops neatly and safely.
SPF is a new strategy for preventing junk mail. The present SMTP standard for email allows anyone to forge anyone else's email address. SPF verifies that the Sender address of an email message matches (according to some policy) the client IP address that submitted it. libspf2 is a complete and robust implementation of SPF which provides support for many MTAs. Support for new MTAs is in progress.
spfmilter is a milter (sendmail mail filter) which implements the Sender Policy Framework (SPF). SPF is a strategy for preventing junk mail. The SMTP standard for email allows anyone to forge anyone else's email address. SPF verifies that the Sender address of an email message matches (according to some policy) the client IP address that submitted it.
