Current Version: 1.3.2 / 3.0 (March 20, 2006)

Mailtron Gateway is a POP (and for Mac OS X, a POP/IMAP) email gateway from Studiotron Software that allows multiple people at a single domain to share a single email account. The license key that is required after the initial 30-day usage period is free for "Classic" Mac OS. Version 3.x (for Mac OS X only), however, comes as a fully-functional demo that runs for 30 days (except that he fetchmail daemon will not automatically run after a system restart) and can be registered for $69. The Mac OS X version features "industrial strength" mail forwarding using fetchmail, and automatic protocol detection, including IMAP.

Version 3.0 - the latest release for Mac OS X - adds/addresses the following:

  • Fixed compatability with Mac OS X Tiger folder privileges.
  • Integrated Kagi registration keys.

User Reviews

"This fine, free program works as advertised. It is easy to set up and runs like a champ. We use it to route all the Internet email for our entire company (15 users)."
—Rob Fiorendino

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
