Weasel is a mail server for OS/2. As well as supporting the basic mail server functions, it has many security features such as filtering, authentication, blacklists, etc. The standard version is shareware but registration is optional. Registration is required to upgrade to the "Pro" version which supports multiple mail domains.

by people who have downloaded beta versions. Only
the last change is completely new.)
