37 <command>mailx</command>, a command-line Mail User Agent derived from
38 Berkeley Mail. It is intended to provide the functionality of the POSIX
39 <command>mailx</command> command with additional support for MIME messages,
40 IMAP (including caching), POP3, SMTP, S/MIME, message threading/sorting,
41 scoring, and filtering. <application>Heirloom mailx</application> is
