Libremail 2.4 Free Mail Server....

Beyond the puns, there are many voluntary differences between these 2 categories of software.

  • First of all, with Libremail by Bernard Chardonneau, each received mail or sent is memorized in a distinct file.

  • It is a very important point which largely facilitates the writing of scripts shells intended to sort automatically, and to classify by category the mails received according to the shipper or from a tag in the subject. Libremail 2.4 comprises an application intended (in combination with grep and other tools of the UNIX systems) to allow this kind of sorting.
    With a distinct file by message, one can also add a classification according to the seniority of the files (recent or old mails).

    In the same way, various data files used by Libremail [libremail2.4.exe] (among which the address book) are simple textual files perfectly displayable and modifiable under a text editor.

  • Libremail - 1.11MB privileges the messages in text mode.

  • When information is transmitted, opinions etc. . . by the electronic mail, the most important is in the contents of the expressed ideas. One can certainly make the reading more pleasant of the texts long, by cutting out them in paragraphs and jumping of the lines. But that does not require therefore a page-setting elaborate, worthy of a commercial mail.

    When the documents forms is a part of information that one wants to transmit (model of leaflet, of poster, model of newspaper), the electronic mail allows in all way of doing it using to the joined files. But for the majority of the messages, the ornaments on the level of the bill of character or other artifices of this kind hardly have utility.

    Many " commercial" software, of which Outlook give the possibility of seizing the messages with page-setting with format HTML (of surcroit of the bad HTML in which a whole series of pig iron and cast iron and other graphic ornaments are sometimes defined at the beginning of message without never being used thereafter!) In this case, the message in HTML is often doubled by a version of the message in text mode (except for much of publicities, which allows to recognise them).

    Libremail 2.4 displays only the part in text mode of these messages, and all the mails which it permit to send are exclusively in text mode.

  • Libremail includes a series of tools for filtering the messages

    • complete email addresses,

    • the address of a supplier of particular access (all Emails " lodged" by this supplier will be refused),

    • addresses comprising of the fixed parts and the variable parts, which is interesting in the case of spams in which from one message to another, certain characters of the address change to mislead in the more traditional filters.

  • Libremail can first of all remove from server without even downloading them the mails in pure HTML. The shippers of the messages thus removed are informed by it by an automatic answer. In fact, as many spameurs have cowardice to use false addresses of forwarding, the user of the tool for filtering will be informed by it, which in the final analysis, is a mean of indexing these undesirable shippers.

    Libremail has a tool which permits to remove the message exceeding a selected size. One can however define a list of shippers who will not be touched by this filtering. When a message is thus removed, the shipper and the recipient are informed by it by a mail of replacement.

    Libremail can finally remove all the messages coming from an address of undesirable shipper.
    The list which defines the addresses to be filtered can contain:

    Libremail can also remove the mails of which the subject, the recipient field, or any other field of the heading of the mail contains character strings refused by the recipient (useful to filter some spams or of the mails containing a virus in enclosure).

    Libremail also has a tool to refuse the mails sent in hidden copy. It`s possible however define a list of shippers who will not be touched by this filtering. When a message is thus removed, the shipper can be informed of it by a replacement mail.

  • Libremail allows a partial downloading of the mails on server

  • Libremail has a downloading program which recovers mails while starting with smallest and which periodically erasing server those recovered. Thus, if the telephone link is cut after several minutes of downloading, one will not be necessary to reload once again the majority of the already recovered mails.

    Libremail also has several tools to download only some mails according to the contents of one of the fields of the heading (shipper, subject, or other).

  • Libremail does not take an initiative which endangers the operating system

    • the joined files present in a message must initially be recovered and are stored in a specific directory

    • then, one can examine these files one by one with the adequate tool

  • Outlook is known for its capacity to open enclose files without the user decided it, whether it acts of inoffensive files or virus. Remainder, the display of message in HTML presents already a risk insofar as a file HTML can refer to images associated with the text. . . whereas nothing guarantees that these files contain simple images!

    For the enclose files, Libremail on the contrary functions in 2 stages:

    Moreover, Libremail detects the joined files whose name including (at least) 2 suffixes, or (evolution in 2004) only one extention other than . exe , and who have the header of the executable MS-DOS/Windows files.
    The files having simultaneously these two characteristics being often viruses, libremail announces this risk.
    All this regardless of the fact that Libremail was written for the operating system GNU/Linux which is not directly concerned with this problem and is in all way less prone to the viral attacks than Windows.

  • Libremail is not a monolithic fenestrated tool

  • This characteristic can appear as a disadvantage according to the current fashion. Libremail remains in Unix philosophy: each tool carries out a specific work.

    Some of these tools can be integrated in shells to carry out a series of automatic treatments, either at the request of the user, or automatically at the moment of the connection (login) of this one.

    Other tools function in page layout view and are mutually called, which makes it possible to explore the various directories containing of the mails, to read those, answering some, to write others, to remove of them messages, etc. . . by using various keys of the keyboard (in particular arrows), all this without being necessary to call in a specific way each tool used.
    Display intensified brightness or dark color make it possible to locate the new mails, to locate the directories without messages etc. . .

    One is thus not well far from the user-friendliness of a software fenestrated without the principal disadvantage of those : their slowness sometimes surprising even with processors with more than 2 GHz.
    With Libremail, display is instantaneous even with Pentium 100.

  • If libremail does not suit you, modify it!

  • Contrary to Outlook, and to much of other software (including unfortunately what one generally recovers in the paying GNU/Linux distributions), the sources of Libremail are provided systematically.

    Libremail consists in some 66 source files and 33 data files making it possible to compile 29 applications and to carry out them with 8 languages available for the user interface (these numbers regularly grow since the first version of Libremail and will be able to still evolve).
    The whole takes about 900 K bytes (without documentation in several languages) and half of the volume of the sources makes up of comments.

    Without it being a small application, the source files of libremail remain accessible for all those which maitrisent the language C Donc correctly if a tool does not suit you, or if you find defects to him, do not hesitate to make it evolve.
