Authors/Port authors:

Weasel: a POP3 and SMTP daemon for OS/2 (also available an IMAP optional extension). Includes controls on who may send relay mail, and includes a way of blocking mail from specified hosts. This software was "optional shareware". What this means was that you decided whether you wanted to register as a paid owner of the software. The author will continue to provide support, for at least the short-term future.

Many thanks to Peter Molyan, the author, who on 17/09/2014, released as GPL License the source code of one of the most used mail server on OS/2.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Program is distributed as ZIP package: download to temporary directory and unpack to destination folder. Start makefolder.cmd to create program objects and configure the program (instructions in Weasel.INF file). See below for download link(s).

Warp 4.51 or better to support files bigger than 2GB. The program was developed using Modula/2 Toolkit for OS/2, in Modula-2 language (an advanced Pascal language, see the documentation).

Following ones are the download links for manual installation:

Multimigrate v. 0.1 (3/3/2024, Peter Moylan) Readme/What's new
WEASEL TOOL TO SWITCH YOUR WEASEL CONFIGURATION TO MULTIDOMAIN MODE For safety, you should stop Weasel while you run this program, because it moves mail between directories. The program has to be run from the same directory where Weasel lives. The program shifts data around to turn your Weasel installation into a multidomin configuration. If you're nervous about what it does, just duplicate your Weasel directory and make the change on the duplicate, as a test. However, there's little risk of anything going wrong. Your users won't notice any difference, because the program moves their mail files to the right place. If you don't like the result, Setup.exe has an option to switch you back to single-domain mode, but that option will eventually be removed from Setup. MOTIVATION Originally, Weasel only supported a single mail domain, but a multi-domain option was added later. Having to support two different modes has turned out to be a nuisance, because it makes the source code complicated, with all that means in terms of making mistakes when modifying the code. I try not to modify the code too often, but there are always requests to add features, and new features result in new bugs. To simplify things a bit, my medium-term goal is to eliminate the single-domain mode. Obviously, it will ease the transition if people move to the multidomain option in advance. There is no longer a good reason for staying in single-domain mode. The multidomain mode works well for several domains, and that includes the case where "several" means "one".
