Hotwayd/Hotsmtpd version 0.8 released

Hotwayd/Hotsmtpd is a POP3/SMTP to HTTPMail gateway daemon which allows any POP3/SMTP compliant mail reader to retrieve and send mail via Hotmail, MSN, Lycos (Europe) and Spray.se mailboxes in a similar way to how Outlook Express does. It does this via the HTTPMail protocol, which is a somewhat undocumented WebDAV-based protocol providing access to these mailboxes via HTTP (which also means that you can use this behind a proxy server). This daemon is written for POSIX-based (Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, etc) operating systems, but can also be compiled in Windows using Cygwin. It generally runs as a service using xinetd or inetd on older systems, and full installation instructions are given on the web site http://hotwayd.sourceforge.net/... read more

Transition of Administration: a new start?

As of today, David Smith and me have been added to the list of administrators of this project, a list that only consisted of the project's founder, Tomas Espeleta. This was done by the SourceForge team on our request, as Tomas has been... out of touch for a while now.

We can consider this a new start. I just uploaded the latest version, 0.5.1. That's v0.5 as available on David Smith's website, including the couple of patches we made since it was released.... read more
