sTeam provides a technical platform which allows groups of students, lecturers, and any other groups to construct and arrange their individual and cooperative learning and working space. It consists of an object-oriented server connected to a database, and Web, Java, and other (FTP, SMTP, IRC, etc.) clients. The server is event-driven and manages all user objects as well as the communication between the connected clients. Features that were different from most other cooperation tools is the self-organisation and self-administration by the members within the virtual environment.
Microbrew Message Center is designed to be an immensely scalable mail platform supporting multiple users, multiple domains, and multiple mail servers. It is akin to iPlanet or post.office but is not as complex and uses open source software to perform mundane services such as Web and mail services.
Webtop is a Web-based POP3 email client that includes SSL encryption, Mozilla support, many email filter options, spam fighting features, custom folders, email import/export, fast searching, undeliverable email bounce, intelligent read receipts, and email-to-PDF generation. The Webtop also includes a calendar, notepad, online file storage, automated email reminders, contacts, mailing lists, and Web-based administration. One installation can support multiple users and each user can set up as many POP3 accounts as they need.
Net_NNTP is a PHP/PEAR library for communication with NNTP servers. Net_NNTP handles connection and protocol-level commands (RFC977), including many non-standard commands (RFC2980), via a user-friendly API which hides the actual NNTP commands/syntax. Some knowledge about NNTP and general knowledge about email and MIME is required, since parsing of content and headers is left up to the user. Net_NNTP allows advanced users direct usage of NNTP commands via the separate protocol implementation. Net_NNTP includes a fully-functional NNTP to HTML gateway demo application.
PostArmor (formerly MailArmor) helps to keep your electronic mailbox free of spam: it looks at the relevant parts of your email before it leaves the mail server, and lets the legitimate messages pass through undisturbed, while leaving suspect messages on the server to be reexamined later or just deleted after a while. It works as a POP3 email proxy, with support for POP, APOP, and IMAP servers. It supports SpamCop reports and blacklist, and the ORDB and OSIRUSOFT blacklists.
OfflineIMAP is a tool to simplify email reading. It allows you to read the same mailbox from multiple computers and ensures that your changes will be automatically reflected on all computers. You can use various mail clients to read a single box or read mail while offline with full synchronization when you reconnect. You can read IMAP mail with readers that lack IMAP support (same goes for SSL). OfflineIMAP's multithreaded synchronization algorithm performs between 10 and 60 times faster than many mail readers' internal IMAP support, and it can be used even with mail readers that support IMAP already. There are five available user interface modules, including scripted execution, an interactive terminal interface, and GUI interfaces.
