OpenSMTPD is an RFC compliant, secure, and simple SMTP server ported from OpenBSD to Linux. It supports the SMTP protocol, including SSL versions for added security, virtual domains, forward files, and external delivery agents like procmail, and can do most of the basic things that other MTA implementations do.
claws-mail-indicator is a simple plug-in which adds support to Claws Mail for the Ubuntu indicators. Notifications are displayed in the Messaging menu, with the option to display a notification bubble each time new messages arrive. It was developed and tested on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty) 64-bit.
Masqmail is an MTA (mail transport agent) for notebooks, workstations, home servers, and generally any host with no permanent network connection. It has special support for multiple transfer routes (e.g. to different mail providers). Address rewriting can be done in several ways. It is a slim replacement for full-blown MTAs such as sendmail, exim, qmail, or postfix and for the intended uses, configuration is much simpler.
pop3ml is a program to manage mailing lists and newsletters without a local SMTP server. It requires only a simple POP3 email account. It's highly configurable by users. You can subscribe or unsubscribe simply with email messages. There is optional subscription and unsubscription confirmation, subscription moderation, message moderation, digest message mode, parent/children list management, mail scheduling to postpone or repeat a message, a mail filter (with a procmail-like syntax), a message queue for unsent messages, message size check, a command to retrieve messages, bounce detection, message header management, black/white/allow/deny lists, and other functions. There is also a program to test list settings without sending any messages and another program to view and search through stored messages. You can configure it with programs like phpMyAdmin.
