Batched SMTP mailer for sendmail and postfix
- This package adds a new "mailer" named bsmtp to sendmail or postfix, which allows you to use batched SMTP as protocol. BSMTP is used in UUCP environments and allows to transport many mails as a (compressed) batch instead of transporting every single mail. So bsmtp is an alternative to rmail.
Special features of this bsmtp package:
- Completely written in C.
- Configurable batch size (automatically sends batch to uux when a
defined size is reached).
- Creates backups of all outgoing batches (and removes them regularly)
- Works with sendmail and postfix.
- libc6 (>= 2.3.2.ds1-4), sendmail (>= 8.12.3-1) | sendmail-tls | postfix, uucp, logrotate, adduser, dpkg (>= 1.7.0)
