Perl provides many facilities for handling E-mail (e.g: sending, receiving, filtering, processing) available from the CPAN (Comprehensive Perl Archive Network). This is a summary of the recommended ones.

An E-mail handling distribution for Perl 5 with a comprehensive API. Very large and not very fast, and can be intimidating.
