Flail is a flexible, lightweight, minimalist mailer with a command line interface. It is unabashedly designed to make Perl hackers happy. Using flail, it's easy to assemble useful bits of mail-related Perl code into a powerful, no-frills mail reading and composition environment.

Release Notes: SMTP issues with Gmail have been fixed. Decoding of quoted-printable and base64 encodings has been implemented. This release has Content-Transfer-Encoding, MIME-Version, and Content-Type headers by default now. It fixes identity recognition in the reply command. It has improved multiple-identity support in general, especially from the composer. There is cheesy-but-functioning GnuPG integration in the composer. Many irritating little issues in the composer have been fixed (like a 'revert' command to save you when you've messed up with crypto). Improved documentation.
Release Notes: This release folds in a few odds and ends: multiple commands on the same line separated by semi-colons, and identities defined via commands instead of just network endpoints (so you can send via e.g. your Gmail account using a tool like msmtp). There are also a couple cleanups and enhancements in the example code that use the new features (like eg/identities.pl).
Release Notes: Enhancements to the POD and the README, a real Makefile.PL for v0.x, rudimentary SMTP AUTH support, more standard options to built-in commands (like debug and verbose), a more functional "help" command, and general tidying up. This release also includes the beginnings of flail 1.x, which modularizes all of this and repackages flail's functionality with proper Perl modules.
Release Notes: Bugs in message hook processing were fixed. Many other bugfixes and improvements were made, especially to the documentation. Several configuratio examples were added, including a module that supports multiple identities and another that automatically files your mail according to regular expressions.
Release Notes: The code has been revamped (but still needs a rewrite). IMAP and local spool support have been added. A lot more documentation has been added, including a POD/man page. Makefile.PL has been added to make installing it tolerable. A lot of bugs have been fixed, and a lot of things finished. Usable as a daily mailer.
