Trojita is a Qt IMAP email client. It is a pure Qt4 application with no additional dependencies. It has a robust IMAP core implemented using Qt's Model-View framework. Standards compliance is a design goal. It has support for bandwidth-saving mode aimed at mobile users with expensive connections. In addition to the usual SSL/TLS connections, the server can be accessed via SSH. It has on-demand body part loading, offline IMAP support, and safe dealing with HTML mail (actually more robust than Thunderbird's).
smtp-cli is an SMTP command line client with support for advanced features such as STARTTLS, SMTP-AUTH, or IPv6. It also has scriptable message composition capabilities supporting anything from simple plain-text messages right up to building complex HTML emails with alternative plain-text part, attachments, and inline images. It's also a convenient tool for testing and debugging SMTP servers' setups. smtp-cli can be used to check a given server's capabilities, to test your server's setup, or to create and dispatch email messages. The command line interface is intuitive, and everything is scriptable and can run in a completely non-interactive mode from scripts or cron jobs. smtp-cli is ideal for shipping log files from remote machines, running periodic mail delivery test loops, etc.
