From: Peter Moylan
After many unreleased beta versions, the new version of the Weasel mail server, version 1.77, is now available as a GA release. You can get it from ftp://ftp.pmoylan.org/Weasel/weasel177.zip >
or from Hobbes:
or you can go to the Weasel web page at http://www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/Weasel.html >
which also gives you access to Weasel filters and tools.
Weasel is a POP3 and SMTP mail server, and is optional shareware supporting a single mail domain. Registration of the "Pro" version lets you host multiple domains, and will also enable IMAP once a production version of the IMAP add-on is released. (The present version of the IMAP addon is not recommended for production work, because of a serious bug.)
