Mail delivery agent (MDA) with filtering abilities
maildrop is a replacement for your local mail delivery agent, similar to mail/procmail.
- maildrop reads a mail message from standard input, then delivers the message to your mailbox.
- maildrop will optionally read instructions from a file, which describes how to filter incoming mail. Instructions can be provided having mail delivered to alternate mailboxes, or forwarded somewhere else. Unlike procmail, maildrop uses a structured filtering language.
- maildrop knows how to deliver mail to mbox-style mailboxes and maildirs.
- maildrop is written in C++, and handles resources more efficiently.
maildrop can be used with sendmail, qmail, and other MTAs.
