|Initial release||18 January 2007|
2.0 / 12 February 2019
|Type||fetchmail and procmail|
fdm (fetch/filter and deliver mail) is a mail delivery agent and email filtering software for Unix-like operating systems, similar to fetchmail and procmail. It has been started in 2006 by a developer who later also started tmux in 2007.
When in 2014 the last maintainer of procmail posted a message to an OpenBSD mailing list himself suggesting to remove the procmail port, it has been suggested by a well-known OpenBSD ports maintainer that fdm is the natural alternative (the procmail port, however, has not been removed and remains in place as of 2019).
fdm is listed on the OpenBSD Innovations page, in the section of projects maintained by OpenBSD developers outside of OpenBSD.
