"Nail' is a MIME-capable mail user agent derived from Berkeley Mail 8.1. It is a free implementation of the 'mailx' command and has a similar interface. Nail can send and receive attachments and code and decode international character strings. With appropriate support, it can convert between different character encodings. When used with a UTF-8 terminal, it supports nearly all international languages. It also supports external converter programs. 'Nail' also supports SMTP to send messages directly to a remote server (so a local sendmail interface setup is not necessary). It supports POP3 to read messages on a remove server. Nail can read and delete individual messages, so POP3 accounts can be accessed almost like local mail folders.
