    One could argue that mail(1) is a simple SMTP client. What's the difference, is this one more protocol-focused?

  2. By Predrag Punosevac (Oko) on

    How is the new SMTP client related to OpenSMTPD? I would think one could create a "new" SMTP client by a straight forward surgery on OpenSMTPD. How does the new SMTP client compare to DragonFly Mail Agent (dma)?
