Probably the only thing I can do is to make it suitable for the non-free section for the time being. Can you indicate to me how the license shoudl be changed to be suitable for the non-free section?
I don't think that the program provides enough value to be included in Debian
only based on the social contract's "support users" clause. (I.e. nonfree+only
substitute for small shell shell script = not worthy.)

Especially, having a package "email" in non-free tastes way to much like
endorsement of non-free software. (Especially since it's a particulary nasty
variant of non-free-ness.) If the package was called
silly-little-nonfree-email-tool, that might be different...

If you really want something like this in Debian, go write a free substitute.
