Software to read/write/manage emails (client-side), or to process them (server-side).

The term Email, short for "Electronic mail", refers to messages exchanged via the Internet between two or more participants in pure electronic form, mostly as ASCII or Unicode texts, often enriched by HTML elements and CSS styling.

We use this tag when seeking software recommendations for:

  • email clients (those you receive, read, and write your mails with)
  • email filters (e.g. to keep spam out of your inbox)
  • email servers (software to process email server-side, and keep it ready for you to pick up)
  • MTAs and MDAs
