The latest published serialmail package is serialmail-0.75.tar.gz.

What is it?

serialmail is a collection of tools for passing mail across serial links. It works with qmail: you use qmail to deliver messages to a maildir, and then serialmail to deliver messages out of the maildir.

serialmail is designed to handle three common types of mail delivery between a dialup computer and an ISP:

serialmail supports SMTP, including ESMTP PIPELINING, and QMTP.

serialmail uses ucspi-tcp/tcpclient for networking. It can also be used with future UCSPI clients for transparent compression, IPv6, etc.
