amavisd-new interface for milter-capable MTAs

This package provides a milter for amavisd-new that works with Sendmail or Postfix, using the AM.PDP protocol. . Replacing the older amavisd-new-milter program, amavisd-milter makes use of the full functionality of amavisd-new. It supports using spam and virus information header fields, rewriting message subjects, adding address extensions, and selectively removing recipients.


Interface between MTA and virus scanner/content filters

AMaViSd-new is a script that interfaces a mail transport agent (MTA) with zero or more virus scanners, and spamassassin (optional). . It supports all common virus scanners (more than 20 different AVs), with direct talk-to-daemon support for ClamAV, OpenAntiVirus, Trophie, AVG, f-prot, and Sophos AVs. . AMaViSd-new supports all MTAs through its generic SMTP/LMTP filter mode (ideal for postfix and exim). It is faster and safer to use the SMTP/LMTP filter mode than using the AMaViS pipe client. It supports sendmail milter through the amavisd-new-milter package.


archive and compress or delete your old email

Archivemail moves old mail out of a mailbox (in Maildir, MH, or mbox format, or via IMAP) and archives it in a compressed mbox-format mailbox file. It is well suited to be run from cron for automatic archiving of your old mail. Archivemail can also just delete old mail so it is useful for cleaning up mailing list or spam mailboxes.


simple email archiver written in perl

Archmbox is a simple email archiver written in perl; it parses one or more mailboxes, selects some or all messages and then performs specific actions on the selected messages. At this time archmbox supports mbox and mbx mailbox formats. . Messages selection is based upon a date criteria; an absolute date or a days offset can be specified. It is also possible to refine the selection using regular expressions on the header fields of the message. All archived messages are stored in a new mailbox with the same name of the original one plus .archived as extension (this is the default, but can be changed); the archive mailbox can be saved in gz or bz2 compressed format as well.

An extension for Icedove (originally written for Thunderbird) that allows users to create emails with explicit paragraph directionality, as needed for proper recipient rendering of emails with bidi languages, such as Hebrew, Arabic, Farsi, Urdu or Yiddish. . The extension adds "BiDi" controls, setting the paragraph direction, as well as automatic direction sensing for unformatted text messages, and direction overrides.

/main/biff/biff

a mail notification tool

biff is a small program that prints a message to your terminal when new email arrives. Actually, the message is printed by the comsat daemon, and biff just enables/disables the u+x permission flag for the terminal, which comsat uses to determine whether or not to write to your terminal. . biff is mainly of historic interest, since there are much better alternatives (such as xlbiff and gbuffy) that are network-aware and do not require a daemon. Although there are no known security problems, running additional services is often considered risky. . By default, the biff service is disabled. To use biff email notification, you must enable this service by running 'update-inetd --enable biff' after the package is installed. You may also need to modify the configuration of your mail transport agent to enable comsat notification.


system tray notifications for Thunderbird

Birdtray provides systray notifications for Thunderbird. It displays the count of unread mail, hides the Thunderbird window when not in use, and restores it on clicking the tray icon. It also provides a context menu with commands such as starting composing a new mail. . It is a nasty hack -- an external process looking at Thunderbird's insides, it suffers from problems like noticing new mails only after a delay, having to restart Thunderbird just to hide its window, etc -- you'd want to use an extension like firetray instead -- but, it is likely that support for Thunderbird XUL extensions will be dropped soon, possibly by the time you read these words.

/main/bley/bley

intelligent greylisting daemon for Postfix and Exim

bley uses various tests (incl. RBL and SPF) to decide whether a sender should be greylisted or not, thus mostly eliminating the usual greylisting delay while still filtering most of the spam.

/main/bmf/bmf

e-mail filter for spam that learns

A small, fast, flexible Bayesian filter for processing e-mail. It is "trained" by the user to categorize email as spam or non-spam.
