Jaro Mail

Jaro Mail is an integrated suite of interoperable tools for GNU/Linux and Apple/OS X to manage email communication in a private way, without relying on online services (in fact, encouraging users to store email locally). It mainly features a system for mailinglist filtering, address-book integrated whitelisting, strong encryption and anonymous remailing, long-term email storage and archiving with functions for fast search and usage statistics. To accomplish all that, it makes use of solid Unix tools like Mutt, Fetchmail, Mairix, Msmtp, GnuPG, Abook, ELinks, and Mixmaster.
