    1 msmtp is an SMTP client.
    2 
    3 In the default mode, it transmits a mail to an SMTP server.
    4 
    5 To use this program with your mail user agent (MUA), create a configuration 
    6 file with your mail account(s) and tell your MUA to call msmtp instead of 
    7 /usr/sbin/sendmail.
    8 
    9 Features include:
   10 - Sendmail compatible interface (command line options and exit codes)
   11 - Support for multiple accounts
   12 - TLS support including client certificates
   13 - Support for Internationalized Domain Names (IDN)
   14 - Many authentication methods
   15 - Fast SMTP implementation using command pipelining
   16 - DSN (Delivery Status Notification) support
   17 - SOCKS proxy support
   18 
   19 msmtp runs on a wide variety of platforms. It needs little more than an ANSI C
   20 compiler and Berkeley-style sockets. It does not require any additional libraries,
   21 but it can use the following to enhance its feature set:
   22 - GnuTLS. The GnuTLS library provides TLS support. It is highly recommended.
   23   OpenSSL can be used as an alternative to GnuTLS, but this is discouraged.
   24 - GNU SASL. Using the GNU SASL library adds support for some exotic
   25   authentication methods. You really only need it if you want to use GSSAPI.
   26 - GNU libidn2. On modern Linux systems with recent glibc and GnuTLS
   27   libraries, msmtp has automatic support for Internationalized Domain Names
   28   (IDN). On other systems, IDN support is available via libidn2.
