Mailagent is a mail delivery agent, and can be programmed to
respond to mail in ways more sophisticated than a mail filtering
program like procmail. It is easy to configure, and very easy to
extend using Perl. Not only can the base functionality be
extended, new commands and processing methods can be added in a
modular fashion.
Obeying lex-like rulesets, mailagent can file mails to specific
folders (plain Unix-style folders and also MMDF and MH ones),
forward messages to third parties, pipe them to commands or post
them to newsgroups. The filtering commands that are executed on
the messages can be extended, and may rewrite the message headers
or body as desired. It can also create and process commands based
on key words contained in the body of the mail message.
Mailagent can be used as a vacation program, and can answer mail
automatically and with more flexibility than the command of that
name. A template can be provided for the body of the response,
and the frequency of vacation mails can also be specified. Simple
macro substitutions allow parts of the mail header to be recycled
into the vacation messages, for a more personalized reply.
Mailagent can also be used to set up a generic mail server,
without the hassle of the lower-level concerns like error
recovery, logging or command parsing.
Please note that on Debian systems, mailagent requires a catch-all
rule saving all mail into the user's home directory. Unlike other
Mail Delivery Agents such as procmail, mailagent is too extensible
to be safely made setgid mail, and so cannot lock /var/spool/mail
mailboxes.

mailagent (1:3.1-65-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
+ Do not propagate Followup-To headers via POST, unless the value is
"poster". Indeed, INN2 will reject the article if the newsgroup
listed there is invalid.
+ Be more picky about message IDs used for news: ensure there is but
one "@".
+ Be even stricter with X- headers in POST: only let a few selected
ones through.
+ Have POST strip more headers from the message, since INN2 will reject
the message anyway if they are present.
