RFS: hotway-cvs: send and receive mail via Hotmail, Lycos, Spray, and MSN
I've already filed an ITP: and I'm looking for a sponsor for my package.
Package name: hotway-cvs
Upstream author: David Smith <email@example.com>
hotwayd/hotsmtpd are POP3/SMTP-HTTPMail gateway daemons. The HTTPMail
protocol is used by the mail servers Hotmail, Lycos, Spray and MSN. The
hotway suite you can receive and send mail via these services using any
POP3/SMTP compliant mail reader. Note: some email readers don't send
proper SMTP authentication info ( example: kMail 1.6.1 and Evolution
1.4x ), which prevents users from sending mail.
This package is well-tested ( i've been using my own private packages
for months with no problems ). It is based on a snapshot of CVS taken
today with a patch for fixing message download problems.
