mailagent - Sophisticated automatic mail-processing tool
||FreeBSD Ports Latest amd64
Mailagent allows you to process your mail automatically. Given a set
of lex-like rules, you are able to fill mails to specific folders,
forward messages to a third person, pipe a message to a command or
even post the message to a newsgroup. It is also possible to process
messages containing some commands. The mailagent is not usually
invoked manually but is rather called via the filter program, which is
in turn invoked by sendmail.
Most portion of this package is written in Perl and version 5.01M or
higher is known to work nicely.
You are advised to setup the path variable in your mailagent configuration
to include the directory containing perl5 before /usr/bin to avoid getting
a lot of warning message although they are harmless.
See the man page for the detailed information.
** Upgrade note from a previous version to mailagent-3.1.78_1 or later **
In order to make building of this port non-interactive, the build-time
manual configuration of FQDN and the organization name had been removed.
Now you need to specify your domain's FQDN properly in ~/.mailagent file.
Please run "mailagent -I" to make sure your ~/.mailagent is up-to-date,
and set "domain" and "hidenet" configuration options appropriately.
Please consult mailagent(1) for more details.
This package is configured to read /usr/local/etc/mailagent.orgname
file to retrieve the name of your organization. An empty file had been
installed to suppress warning messages. Please modify as necessary.
The mailagent port currently does not have a maintainer. As a result, it is
more likely to have unresolved issues, not be up-to-date, or even be removed in
the future. To volunteer to maintain this port, please create an issue at:
