Email filter and delivery agent
Maildrop is a powerful email filter/delivery agent. Maildrop reads a mail message from standard input, then delivers the message to your mailbox. maildrop knows how to deliver mail to mbox-style mailboxes, and maildirs. The program optionally reads filtering instructions from a file; this lets you deliver mail to alternate mailboxes or have it forwarded. Large messages are saved in a temporary file, and are filtered from the temporary file. Temporary files are saved in the user's home directory. If standard input is a file (not a pipe) a temporary file is not necessary. Maildrop also checks the syntax of the mail delivery instructions the filter file, before attempting to deliver a message. If the filter file contains syntax errors, maildrop terminates without delivering the message. Users can fix typos without losing mail.
