Mailutils is a collection of utilities for handling electronic mail.
It contains a series of useful mail clients and servers built around
the single core library.
Specifically, the package contains a pop3, an imap4 server, a sieve
mail filter, and a movemail program. It also provides a POSIX `mailx'
client, and a collection of other tools. All programs are capable of
reading and storing mail in a variety of formats.
More information about the package is available from the following

Following is the list of user-visible changes in this release.
* New features:
** Autodetection of local folder formats.
"Local" is a format of mail folder that uses local disk (possibly via
NFS) as its storage medium. Currently mailutils is able to handle
three local formats: UNIX mailbox, MH and Maildir. Usually these are
specified using a corresponding URL prefix. However, if an absolute
path name is given instead of a fully qualified URL, mailutils tries to
autodetect the format of the folder in question and handle it
appropriately (previous versions of mailutils assumed the folder
to be in UNIX mailbox format).
** movemail: new program
Moves mail from the user maildrop (remote or local) to the local file.
It supports all mailbox formats, supported by mailutils.
** Support for "maildir" format.
*** Considerably improved debugging diagnostics.
*** New sieve extension tests:
spamd - An interface to SpamAssassin daemon
list - Test headers, structured as lists of values.
timestamp - Compares headers containing dates.
*** Support for -a option (append header)
*** New command 'sendheaders' allows to pre-set the headers to be added to
*** New commands 'sender' and 'nosender' allow to set up a list
of header fields used to determine the sender of the message.
*** New variable 'xmailer' controls whether an X-Mailer header should
be added to outgoing messages.
*** New variables 'datefield' and 'emptystart' for compatibility with
*** New variable 'decode-fallback' controls how to represent the characters
that cannot be rendered using current character set.
*** Support for -t option (read recipients from the message). This fixes
the bug reported lately where mail.remote sends mail to all addresses
in the message, not just the addresses explicitly listed on the
*** New option --login-delay. Support for login-delay
*** New option --undelete. Forces pop3d to clear deletion
marks from all messages after opening the mailbox.
* Bug fixes:
*** Fixed incorrect handling of underscores in Quoted-Printable encoding.
*** rfc2047_decode() takes into account input and output
*** (formataddr): Fixed checking for duplicate addresses.
*** Do not save delete marks when exiting on timeout.
*** Fixed bug that prevented SASL from working over a TLS encrypted
*** IDLE works on TLS connections.
