A highly configurable mail client based on NextStep's Mail.app, Apple Mail, Postillion and GNUMail.


MaiJ is a Java project to implement a fully featured and portable mail client. The main goal is high configurability, security, usability, performance and the look and feel of Mail.app / Apple Mail.

Because of JavaMail-Package was not used, an implementation of mailparsing, especially MIME-parsing, SMTP- and POP3-Engine was required. These classes are optimized for speed, size and integration ability for MaiJ's filters and rulesets to fit in gain.

MaiJ will be under BSD License after rollout.
