Installer la messagerie (SMTP, POP3, IMAP4)


Fetchmail 5.2.1 -- 19 décembre 1999, 715ko (.tar.gz)
Fetchmail is 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, and ESMTP ETRN. It can even support IPv6 and IPSEC.
Fetchmail retrieves mail from remote mail servers and forwards it via SMTP, so it can then be 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 security than any other Un*x remote-mail client. It supports APOP, KPOP, OTP, Compuserve RPA, Microsoft NTLM, and IMAP RFC1731 encrypted authentication methods 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.)
Fetchmail can be started automatically and silently as a system daemon at boot time. When running in this mode with a short poll interval, it is pretty hard for anyone to tell that the incoming mail link is not a full-time "push" connection.
Fetchmail is easy to configure. You can edit its dotfile directly, or use the interactive GUI configurator (fetchmailconf) supplied with the fetchmail distribution.
Fetchmail is fast and lightweight. It packs all its standard features (POP3, IMAP, and ETRN support) in 140K of core on a Pentium under Linux.
Fetchmail is open-source software. The openness of the sources is your strongest possible assurance of quality and reliability.

TWIG 1.0.3 -- 01 août 1999, 62ko (.tar.gz)
TWIG 2.0.0 beta2 -- 12 octobre 1999, 149ko (.tar.gz)
What is TWIG? TWIG is rapidly becoming a very useful intranet/groupware tool and application framework. It is written and implemented completely with the PHP programming language. Our intention is that it become a simple, cross-platform, fast, and browser-independant way to access or share almost any kind of information, without the complexity or costs of other intranet/groupware packages. Features Because of the modular design of TWIG, it is fairly simple to add new features very rapidly. Here are the main features that TWIG currently supports:
* E-Mail (via IMAP)
* Contact Manager
* Scheduling
* Usenet Newsgroups
* Todo Lists
* Bookmarks Many more features are planned, and future features should be simple to add due to TWIG's fairly modular construction.

IMP 2.0.11 -- 17 août 1999, 256ko (.tar.gz)
IMP is a set of PHP scripts that implement an IMAP based webmail system. Assuming you have an account on a server that supports IMAP, you can theoretically use an installation of IMP to check your mail from anywhere that you have web access.
What does it require?
Absolute requirements: A web server running PHP with imap support (PHP 3.0.6 or later), a browser that supports cookies, and an IMAP account.
More or less absolute (ie, you'd have to do serious code revision to get by without): A browser capable of a reasonable level of Javascript and tables.
Highly Recommended: An SSL web server and a browser capable of the same (this would only require minor code modification to get by without, but still...), and PHP compiled into the server as a module.
