Procmail – a versatile e-mail processor and can be used to create mail-servers, mailing lists, sort your incoming mail into separate folders/files (very convenient when subscribing to one or more mailing lists or for prioritising your mail), preprocess your mail, start any programs upon mail arrival (e.g. to generate different chimes on your workstation for different types of mail) or selectively forward certain incoming mail automatically to someone.

Procmail was originally designed and developed by Stephen R. van den Berg. In the fall of 1998, recognizing that he didn’t have the time to maintain procmail on his own, Stephen created a mailing list for discussion of future development and deputized Philip A. Guenther as a maintainer.

Pegasus Mail – a free, proprietary, standards-based electronic mail client suitable for use by single or multiple users on single computers or on local area networks.

Pegasus Mail is an e-mail client that runs on computers using Microsoft Windows: by client, we mean that it interacts directly with the user, allowing mail to be sent, read, filed, printed and otherwise manipulated through a graphical interface.

Pegasus Mail can run on single Windows computers, or local area networks – it has special support for Novell NetWare LANs that allow it to operate intuitively and with almost no maintenance. The program also supports multiple users on a single computer. Versions are available for both 32-bit Windows (Windows 98, NT4, 2000, XP and Vista) and 16-bit Windows (any version of Windows 3.1 or later). Pegasus Mail can act as a complete internal mail system on its own without needing further servers or components: it can send and receive Internet mail on its own using standard protocols (SMTP, IMAP and POP3). By adding our Mercury Mail Transport System as a mail server, you can provide fully-integrated centralized Internet e-mail services and mailing list management for your Pegasus Mail users.

Fetchmail – a full-featured, robust, well-documented remote-mail retrieval and forwarding utility intended to be used over on-demand TCP/IP links (such as SLIP or PPP connections). It supports every remote-mail protocol now in use on the Internet: POP2, POP3, RPOP, APOP, KPOP, all flavors of IMAP, ETRN, and ODMR. It can even support IPv6 and IPSEC.

Fetchmail retrieves mail from remote mail servers and forwards it via SMTP, so it can then be read by normal mail user agents such as mutt, elm(1) or BSD Mail. It allows all your system MTA’s filtering, forwarding, and aliasing facilities to work just as they would on normal mail.

Fetchmail offers better protection against password-sniffing than any other Unix remote-mail client. It supports APOP, KPOP, OTP, Compuserve RPA, Microsoft NTLM, and IMAP RFC1731 encrypted authentication methods including CRAM-MD5 to avoid sending passwords en clair. It can be configured to support end-to-end encryption via tunneling with ssh, the Secure Shell.

Fetchmail can be used as a POP/IMAP-to-SMTP gateway for an entire DNS domain, collecting mail from a single drop box on an ISP and SMTP-forwarding it based on header addresses. (We don’t really recommend this, though, as it may lose important envelope-header information. ETRN or a UUCP connection is better.)

The original author of Fetchmail is Eric S. Raymond.

Nylas Mail (previously: Nylas N1) – an open-source mail client built on the modern web with Electron, React, and Flux. It was designed to be easy to extend, and many third-party plugins are available that add functionality to the client. It supports Gmail, Yahoo, Microsoft Exchange, and IMAP accounts.

The Nylas Mail user interface is styled using CSS, which means it’s easy to modify and extend. Nylas Mail comes stock with a few beautiful themes, and there are many more which have been built by community developers.

Nylas Mail was initially released and open-sourced in early 2015 and was maintained by Nylas until Spring 2017.

There are several forks of Nylas Mail that can be used instead, such as Mailspring or Nylas Mail Lives.
