ARCmail is a replacement for the Unix "mail" program for handling local mail delivery. A mail router program (eg, sendmail) is still required.
- Disposition of mail can be based on a regular expression applied to any header or envelope address.
- Support mailing lists, including user-created and user-maintained lists without postmaster involvement. Mailing lists can include Unix group specifications that will be expanded automatically.
- Can handle different domain names in completely different ways (separate config file for each domain), perfect for ISP's.
- Handles mail being sent to other e-mail adresses, files, and programs in a secure fashion.
- Supports email@example.com syntax and firstname.lastname@example.org syntax.
- Configuration is done with files in a directory heirarchy. All directives in a file are executed as the owner of that file, so users can update their own configurations without introducing security risks.
- For a user, any mail with a "Precedence" header containing "bulk" or "junk" gets filed in a different folder.
- Internal mailing list, if anyone from outside the organisation sends mail to it, return a bounce "User unknown" message after forwarding a copy to the postmaster.
- Mailing list, if the subject includes "subscribe", "unsubscribe", "make money fast" or "free cash" (case insensitive), then it only goes to the moderator.
- Customer mailout list, if anyone in the organisation sends to it, it goes to the customers, if anyone else sends to it, the mail goes to the sales staff.
- A user can decide to tell the mail router to reject with "Permission Denied" any message coming from (say) email@example.com or harrassing-domain.com.
- Postmaster can create default rejection rules than can be overridden by the users.
- Unix system.
- Perl 5.004 or later.
