This email is to inform you of release '10.3' of 'nail' through
freshmeat.net. All URLs and other useful information can be found at
The changes in this release are as follows:
Two errors in MIME header field encoding, a buffer overflow relevant
for systems without iconv(), and two build problems on BSD systems
have been fixed. The code now works around a problem in the OpenBSD
and NetBSD C library that caused empty messages to be sent if the
'record' variable was set.
Nail is a mail user agent derived from Berkeley Mail 8.1. It is
intended to provide the functionality of the POSIX.2 mailx command
with built-in support for MIME messages, POP3, and SMTP. It also
contains some minor enhancements like the ability to set a From:
Address. Nail offers its full command set both for interactive and
batch use, and is especially useful for sending attachments from
scripts or for reading mail via slow connections and on bad
terminals. In recent system environments, nail is Unicode/UTF-8
