This is a dirt-simple commandline mailer program I put together for my
own use, to send emails to idled out players on a MUD I administrate.
It sends emails via SMTP. I have tested it under
Windows 98®, and
Windows 2000®, but theoretically it
should compile and run under most
UNIX®-like OSes and any platform that
supports SDL and SDL_net(it's only dependencies). It is operated
sdlmail text.txt smtp.my_isp.com email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Where text.txt is an ASCII file containing the body of the message.
It sends the text totally raw; any headers and such you wish to be
in the message, must be in the .txt file itself. The same goes for
Update - sdlmail has had another bugfix, to prevent segmentation
faults under linux. Windows and OSX versions do not need this fix
Update - sdlmail has been ported to Mac OSX, with a few minor changes
bumping to version 0.5. I've abandoned the autoconf/automake
garbage in favor of a small custom makefile. There is also an OSX
binary installer available.
Update - sdlmail has had a few patches to port it to
Windows® again, bumping the version
up to 0.4.
Update - sdlmail has been modified to be more polite, giving the server
a HELO message before trying to send an email. This feature is
incorporated in version 0.3, now available for
UNIX®-like OSes that support SDL.
Update - malac has informed me of
a small shortcoming in the code - the read buffer was too small. This
causes it, in some cases, to read only part of an SMTP server's
greeting message, and lag 1 command behind the server every
transaction afterwards. The size has been increased from 100 to 512
bytes. v0.0.2 includes this bugfix.
