'mailfront' is a set of customizeable network protocol frontends for mail servers, replacing or supplementing the features available with the MTA software. It contains complete SMTP, QMQP, QMTP, and POP3 front-ends as well as an authentication module for IMAP. The mail delivery front-ends also contain internal address filtering features. Two SMTP back-ends are provided. One delivers mail to qmail-queue, mimicking most of the behavior of qmail-smtpd, with the addition of support for SMTP AUTH. The other rejects all SMTP commands if $SMTPREJECT is set, and execs its command line otherwise (in order to run the above program).
