What email packages are available on RedHat


What email packages are available on a Red Hat 4 server? I found the 'mail' program but did not like it. I'm just looking to read emails sent to the root user.

Dunno if this is necessary to add but "root" isn't a human account: "root" should be an alias (/etc/aliases or equiv) to a human user. This way if something fishy happens reading the email it'll just affect an unprivileged user process and not root.
