About Pronto
Pronto is a full featured e-mail client written entirely in Perl

After the release of CSCMail-1.6(in Perl), Steven Kordik, the father of
CSCMail, decided it was time for CSCMail to move to C. However, several of us
did not think it was time for CSCMail to make the leap to C and just enjoy
hacking in Perl. So, we continued development of CSCMail in Perl, and just
called it Pronto to destinguish the perl effort from the current efforts of the developers of CSCMail.
