In the true spirit of UNIX, exmh builds on many other small tools. Here are most of them:

[Req]indicates that exmh requires this package to run
[Sug]indicates that this package is required for some functionality
[Opt]indicates that this package is optional

[Req]exmh-2.7.2.tar.gz
The latest version of exmh. This requires Tcl/Tk 8.0 or higher. You might as well have the latest (non-beta) version of Tcl/Tk.
[Sug]SourceForge CVS.
The source code repository for exmh is at SourceForge.
[Req]nmh
A cleanup of the MH code that works with exmh and is much easier to compile and install on your UNIX systems.
[Opt]rand-mh
The original MH mail package. This is also the web site for the MH and nmh book
[Req]tcl8.4.9-src.tar.gz
"Tool Command Language" What is TCL?
[Req]tk8.4.9-src.tar.gz
[Req]mm2.7.tar.Z
Metamail, used to display and process MIME messages. exmh requires this package to display MIME messages, but you may use mhn to compose MIME messages.
[Sug]Faces/Picons
With the Picons package (a.k.a. Faces), the faces of your correspondents can be displayed alongside their messages, and you may compose a "face" header of your own.
[Sug]Glimpse
The Glimpse is a full text index system with low space overhead. Exmh provides an interface to its search engine that makes it easy to find mail messages in any of your multitude of folders.
[Sug] netscape-remote.
A Tcl extension that provides efficient interaction with netscape. Look for this in the misc subdirectory of the exmh distribution.
[Sug]Procmail
The procmail facility is a general mail handler that can sort mail into folders as it arrives. Exmh can work with any mail filtering program. This is different than the filtering mechanism built into MH. Here are some other mirror sites: Ohio State, PSG, UC Santa Barbara, Germany.
[Sug]uudeview
This is a viewer for binhex, base64, uuencode and xxencode files.
[Sug]ifile intelligent mail filter
Intelligent message refiling. This uses a text-based learning algorithm to learn user preferences for which messages should go in which folders. Here is the latest README.
[Sug]Img
A package that adds additional image types to the Tk photo widget, allowing automatic in-line display of additional image/* MIME types. Please see the Tkimg SourceForgeProject for the latest software release.
[Sug]Par
A very sophisticated quoting engine. The cite.pl script uses this. Find cite.pl in the misc/ directory of the exmh distribution.
[Sug]Mimep
A printing package for MIME messages.
[Sug]openldap
Commands for accesing LDAP servers.
[Sug]Antiword
A tool that is used for inline display of MsWord documents.
[Sug]SpamAssassin
A popular spam-filtering package. Exmh is able to invoke the "sa-learn" program to train the Bayesian classifier used by SpamAssassin, so it produces better results.
[Sug]Laola
Another tool that can be used for inline display of MSWord documents. The Antiword package is however known to produce "better" results.
