GNU Anubis
Processes outgoing mail

Anubis is an SMTP message submission daemon. It represents an intermediate layer between mail user agent (MUA) and mail transport agent (MTA), receiving messages from the MUA, applying to them a set of predefined changes and finally inserting modified messages into an MTA routing network. The set of changes applied to a message is configurable on a system-wide and per-user basis. The built-in configuration language used for defining sets of changes allows for considerable flexibility and is easily extensible. GNU Anubis can edit outgoing mail headers, encrypt and/or sign mail with the GNU Privacy Guard, build secure SMTP tunnels (Simple Mail Transport Protocol) using the TLS/SSL encryption even if your mail user agent doesn't support it, or tunnel a connection through a SOCKS proxy server.


The Anubis Manual is available for download.
