In-app support for SMTP connections now on meli (`async` git branch). Also available in the mail client library crate "melib" as an async interface using `smol` runtime. 

Previously only sending mail by piping messages to shell commands was available. Now you can choose between SMTP and shell commands.

Also supported is SMTP password command evaluation

meli has now enough functionality to implement IMAP -> maildir sync with little new code. I hope it will be included in the next release.

Fun data table feature: using a segment tree of an array with values the column entry widths we can query the maximum entry width inside a range in ~O(logn) time. No need for a column to be wide because of a large value that's 5 pages later!

Are you comfortable with ? Would you like to contribute to with mentoring?

I've started compiling some easy TODOs on . We will figure these out together. If you're interested send a private toot, email me epilys at or join on freenode. terminal mail client

For what it's worth, JMAP, which no one uses yet, is coming to meli as well.

This will raise the count of mail storages of to five: maildir, mbox, imap, notmuch and jmap

Does anyone have experience with openSUSE Build Service and is willing to help me a bit with packaging ?

Ok, now this is almost a terminal emulator. Time to sleep.
