Note for the impatient: scroll to the bottom of the page to see the RPMs available for download...


Some of the RPMs here require some perl modules to be installed. The ones that don't come as standard with the Fedora or Red Hat distribution should be available as RPMs in the perl-modules directory.

If you have any queries or problems with these RPMs, please raise a ticket on the bug tracker or contact the packager, Paul Howarth <paul@city-fan.org> directly.


dovecot

dovecot is a POP3/IMAP server, and is the default one for Fedora since Fedora Core 2, replacing UW-IMAP. The pigeonhole subpackage contains the sieve and managesieve plugins for the dovecot LDA.

fetchyahoo

fetchyahoo is a program that collects mail from Yahoo!'s webmail service and delivers it to a local mailbox.

getmail

getmail is a multi-protocol mail retrieval system with support for simple and domain POP3 and IMAP4 mailboxes, domain SDPS mailboxes, POP3-over-SSL and IMAP-over-SSL, mail sorting, message filtering, and delivery to Maildirs, Mboxrd files, external MDAs, and other advanced features.

grepmail

grepmail is a powerful utility for searching emails in mailbox files, which may be compressed.

sendmail

I like to build my own versions of sendmail, the Internet's most widely used MTA, so that I get all the features I want included. My RPMs are intended to be drop-in replacements for the official Red Hat/Fedora packages, and indeed are based on development Fedora versions of the sendmail package.

sendmail-milter-spf

This is Mark Kramer's perl-based milter for running SPF checks on messages passing through a sendmail server. spf-milter-whitelisting-with-access.db.patch is a patch I wrote for this milter to allow recipient whitelisting using the access database in sendmail.

sfcmilter

sfcmilter (Sender Forgery Check) is Jef Poskanzer's milter for checking that the envelope sender address on mail arriving at a sendmail server matches the header sender address. It is intended to be used in conjunction with spfmilter.

smf-sav

smf-sav is Eugene Kurmanin's C-based milter for running Sender (and Recipient) Address Verification checks on messages passing through a sendmail server.

smf-spf

smf-spf is Eugene Kurmanin's C-based milter for running SPF checks on messages passing through a sendmail server. It is based on libspf2 (version 1.2.x), which can be found in the libraries directory.

spamass-milter

spamass-milter is a milter for filtering mail through SpamAssassin during the inbound SMTP conversation, providing the ability to reject mail classified as spam in-protocol. The big advantage of this over post-processing filters is that the sender of genuine mail that has been misclassified (not a common occurrence anyway) will see the rejection and can do something about it rather than wondering why you didn't reply to their bit-bucketed mail.

spfmilter

spfmilter is Jef Poskanzer's C-based milter for running SPF checks on messages passing through a sendmail server. It is based on libspf2, which can be found in the libraries directory. Whilst not as feature-rich as the perl-based milter, it is smaller and faster. Note that the spfmilter packages here use Jef's version numbering scheme rather than the scheme used on the libspf2 download page; although the version numbers are lower, the packages here are more up to date.
