Putmail is a very lightweight MTA or SMTP client that may replace the sendmail command when used by MUAs that lack SMTP support.

Release Notes: This release implements a check that detects failures when attempting to use TLS authentication. In previous versions, this could silently fail, and the password would be sent in clear text when the user thought it was being sent in encrypted form. This shouldn't be a problem if the user is sure of the server capabilities and has configured the program properly, but an upgrade is highly encouraged. In addition, due to a lack of demand, internationalization support has been removed.
Release Notes: There were very small changes to improve compatibility with sendmail's command line arguments. The program now prints errors and warnings to a log file so users can read them when stderr is not available. It also creates a sample configuration file the first time you run it in order to ease configuration.
Release Notes: By popular demand, a new option named "quiet" has been included to suppress error and warning messages about the SMTP connection. See the man page for further details.
Release Notes: The FAQ has been updated with information on using SSL SMTP servers. The man page and disconnect code have been improved due to problems detected with SSL STMP servers.
Release Notes: The documentation has been reorganized. Some minor code changes and cleanups have been made. The program has reached the stable status.
