XMail is a scripting addition (OSAX) for Mac OS X. The aim of XMail is to provide an easy way to send mails from Applescript.
It is a powerful scripting addition for Mac OS X 10.2 or later allowing AppleScripters to send mails from AppleScript without using a third-party application.

Here are some key features of "XMail":
full unicode support in every parts of the mail
multiple recipients (TO,CC,BCC)
various SMTP authentication (Plain, Login, Anonymous, CRAM-MD5, CRAM-SHA1)
secured connection (SSL encryption is available)
extra mail headers
support for HTML mails.

What's New:
Added a pop3 and apop authentification schemes (make use of libpop3, an other Open Source project).
Code redesign to remove all STL dependencies to allow a better portability
The base64 encoding algorithm was Sharked and redesigned to allow a quicker compression of attachments and a better portability
The mimes lists is now included in the binary itself, you cannot add extensions in the plist, this is a regression allowing a better portability.
