CSMail is a very simple framework that provides an NSMailDelivery-like interface but supports plug-in back-ends that can talk to other e-mail software. Currently we provide Eudora and Entourage support, as well as a built-in Mail.app back-end.
CSMail has some support for formatting; currently the Entourage back-end can send formatted messages. It also supports attachments for all back-ends.
We're very interested in gaining support for other e-mail clients, however some mail clients will need a significant amount of work—for instance, Mozilla Thunderbird, which doesn't provide an AppleScript interface.
Download the source code (version 1.3.0, 62KB).
To install a plug-in, download and decompress the file, then place it in
/Library/Application Support/Coriolis/CSMail Plugins/
(You may need to create this folder if it does not exist.)
Pre-built versions of the available plug-ins can be found below. Note that support for Mail.app is built-in; you don't need to download anything if you use that client.
