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.

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.

Mailspring – a new version of Nylas Mail maintained by one of the original authors. It replaces the JavaScript sync code in Nylas Mail with a new C++ sync engine based on Mailcore2. It uses roughly half the RAM and CPU of Nylas Mail and idles with almost zero “CPU Wakes”, which translates to great battery life. It also has an entirely revamped composer and other great new features.

Mailspring’s UI is open source (GPLv3) and written in JavaScript with Electron and React – it’s built on a plugin architecture and was designed to be easy to extend.

Mailspring’s sync engine is spawned by the Electron application and runs locally on your computer. It will be open-sourced in the future but is currently closed source. When you set up your development environment, Mailspring uses the latest version of the sync process we’ve shipped for your platform so you don’t need to pull sources or install its compile-time dependencies.

Mailspring comes packed with powerful features like Unified Inbox, Snooze, Send Later, Mail Rules, Templates and more.

Gnus (Gnus Network User Services) – a text based email reader which started as a standalone application but is part of GNU Emacs now. It supports reading and composing e-mail and news and can also act as an RSS reader, web processor, and directory browser for both local and remote filesystems.

Gnus can connect to the Gmail server in two ways: by POP3, or by IMAP. Each protocol behaves in a different way, so you can select the one which better suits your needs. Furthermore, as a third solution you can download your mail with an external program like fetchmail and let Gnus handle it locally.

Goals:
– Gnus is solid
– Works on all platforms
– Less hardware resource required
– Searcher and filter is great
– Mail can be viewed when offline. See the “offline” in section “Advanced tips”
– Powerful when used with other Emacs plugins like yasnippet

Gnus was originally written by Masanobu UMEDA in 1988, and went through a series of releases up until 1992.
Rewriting of GNUS started in late ’94. The first “proper” release of Gnus 5 was done in November 1995 when it was included in the Emacs 19.30 distribution (132 (ding) Gnus releases plus 15 Gnus 5.0 releases).
In May 1996 the next Gnus generation (aka. “September Gnus” (after 99 releases)) was released under the name “Gnus 5.2” (40 releases).
On July 28th 1996 work on Red Gnus was begun, and it was released on January 25th 1997 (after 84 releases) as “Gnus 5.4”.
Quassia Gnus was the next release. It was released as Gnus 5.6.
Then came Pterodactyl Gnus, which has now been released as Gnus 5.8/5.9.
Oort Gnus was started in October 2000. It’s big, it’s way out there, and it occasionally rains down death and destruction on innocent bystanders.
Oort Gnus was released as Gnus 5.10 in May 2003 – and Gnus 5.11 bundled with GNU Emacs 22.1 in June 2007.
Work on the following development version, dubbed No Gnus, was begun in January 2004. A version of No Gnus was released as Gnus 5.13 with GNU Emacs 23.1 in July 2009.

Stable versions of Gnus is included in the Emacs and XEmacs editors.
