Mailx – an intelligent mail processing system, which has a command syntax reminiscent of ed with lines replaced by messages. It’s a free implementation of the System V mailx command and features an interface like that by default.

It is based on Berkeley Mail 8.1, is intended to provide the functionality of the POSIX mailx command, and offers extensions for MIME, IMAP, POP3, SMTP, and S/MIME. Mailx provides enhanced features for interactive use, such as caching and disconnected operation for IMAP, message threading, scoring, and filtering. It is also usable as a mail batch language, both for sending and receiving mail.

Some features are:
– Supports the MIME specifications
– Supports IMAP. In combination with either OpenSSL or Mozilla NSS, IMAPS can also be used.
– Supports caching and disconnected operation of IMAP folders.
– Supports POP3 to read messages on a remote server. In combination with OpenSSL or NSS, POP3S can also be used.
– Supports SMTP to send messages directly to a remote server.
– Supports S/MIME for signed and encrypted email (in combination with OpenSSL or NSS).
– In combination with NSS, certificates for S/MIME and SSL/TLS can be shared with Mozilla applications, and can be managed using them.
– Can display message threads and supports operations on them.
– Provides a Bayesian junk mail filter.
– Features a lot of detail improvements over previous implementations of Mail/mailx, such as IMAP-style search methods and flags for any types of folders, killing and scoring of messages, maildir folder support, an option to set the From: address directly, and the generation of References: header fields to avoid annoyances on mailing lists.
– Can be used as a mail batch language in nearly the same way as it is used interactively.

MailShare – a freeware program used to exchange files in peer2mail technology, through free mailboxes.

This way of file exchange is much more secure than the direct exchange method of peer2peer files. MailShare divides the files into smaller parts of the so-called party. Individual pieces are sent to your e-mail account. After downloading all the parts, they are merged into the original file. This solution allows users to store files in an email account and easily download them from any computer.

MailShare programmers also took care of the convenience and ease of use of the program. The interface is friendly and its operation is very intuitive. The wide range of options included in the program makes it easier for even novice users to work with MailShare.

Features:
– Simple, clear and understandable user interface
– Modern design
– A comprehensive help system
– Free technical support on the Internet MailShare forum
– Downloading files from two mailboxes simultaneously (for a single file)
– Validating downloaded files and automatically fixing if errors are detected
– Compatibility with HashCode programs: MailShare, MoorHunt (aa-ah), Ygoow
– Simultaneous sending files from an unlimited number of boxes
– A clear system of statistics of the amount of data downloaded and sent
– A modern module for updating applications and libraries of mailboxes
– Support for POP3 / IMAP / SMTP protocols

The last version of MailShare 2.1.5 was released in 2012.

BitchX – a free software text-based IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client for UNIX-like systems.

BitchX began as a script by Trench and HappyCrappy for the popular UNIX IRC client ircII. Around Christmas of 1994 the script was patched directly into the client by Colten Edwards (panasync).

As BitchX was developed over the years it both developed its own large set of unique features, as well as acquiring many features from EPIC (another popular ircII offshoot).

Features:
– Works out-of-the box.
– Fully configurable and themable.
– Extended ircII scripting functionality.
– Built-in bot-like channel management functionality.
– Built-in mass commands and tools.
– Extended set of DCC commands and built-in CDCC/XDCC file offering.
