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.
Why a milter archiver? If you are required to also log source and destination IPs and BCCs (additional rcpt to's not in a CC field communicated at the SMTP protocol level), then the only option is do this in the MTA, or in a milter application that has hooks in the MTA process (which is exactly why milter was invented). It uses a simple regex file that can be used with several *source target-mailbox rules to define what gets mirrored where. The archiver tries to be as quiet as possible. The possible methods to archive are SMTP, sendmail inject / Postfix inject, IMAP delivery, and milter-add recipient. It was build as a replacement for a Postfix BCC setup: (sender_bcc_maps = regexp:/etc/postfix/archive; recipient_bcc_maps = regexp:/etc/postfix/archive).
HeaderCleaner is a small SMTP server plugin that will only allow a set of predefined headers in an outgoing email message and will strip all other headers from the message. This is meant to improve your privacy and better protect the mail handling server. This version is made for Communigate-Pro, but can be adapted for other systems.
Melon MailServer is a simple mail server emulator for developers. It can emulate POP3 and SMTP services. The SMTP facility receives and stores all the messages sent to it rather than sending them. The POP3 facility allows you to download any messages without authorization. The server is designed to accept all messages for any email accounts. It can be very useful for testing Web applications and other software applications.
