It supports built-in security methods, including Kerberos IV, Kerberos V, SSL/TLS, and SRP, FTP protocol features such as MLSD, and source-code parity with Kermit 95 2.1 for Windows and OS/2.
popexec is a program for Unix/Linux which checks a POP e-mail account and then runs a program whenever new e-mail arrives. It can also optionally run a program when it sees that you no longer have new e-mail in your POP box. Examples are included which show you how to: Write "You have mail" or "You have X new messages" to a terminal, make a terminal beep, play an audio file, pop an X window onto the screen, make your keyboard LEDs blink, change your desktop background.
Simple network top (sntop) is a curses-based console utility in the spirit of top that polls network hosts at a regular interval to determine their connectivity and displays the results in a pretty format. Advanced features are supported, such as automatic HTML generation of results, secure terminal mode, execution of an external file on connectivity changes, a daemon mode, and user/system configure files.

VK Mail has three main components: an email daemon that acts as a proxy to any standard mail server, an email parser, and a Web mailer. All these together allow users to send email by simply typing an email address in a standard graphical Web browser, and allow better anti-spam control for email recipients. The goal of this project is not to develop an anti-spam email filter that simply deletes the junk messages after they are already delivered to the user. Instead, it rejects emails from spammers.
cvsroot is a script to help keep track of multiple sites when using CVS, and in particular the CVSROOT and CVS_RSH environment variables for those sites. It creates a $HOME/.cvsroot file, with shortcut names representing the different CVS sites. The new environment variables appropriate to the site selected will then be set, and a new shell will be spawned to keep the variables. In this way, you do not have to keep setting the environment yourself, and can rely on the script to keep track of things for you.
Email sends email to remote SMTP servers via the command line, which makes it useful in cron jobs. It will send to any RFC standard remote ESMTP server, is TLS/SSL enabled, and will allow you to encrypt, sign, and design your message on the fly. It has the capability to use signature files with dynamic options, address book functionality, and users can also attach pictures, binary files, documents, or whatever they want. It is completely compatible with GNUPG for encryption and signing, and is easy to configure and use.
