Launchmail is a simple SMTP client intended for use on systems where sendmail is considered too dangerous. The command line interface is derived from that of blat but it comes with a sendmail compatible wrapper script so it can be used as a drop in replacement for sendmail.
Launchmail is freely available under the GNU General Public License.
Currently, launchmail is only known to compile and work on Redhat 6.x (intel) and Solaris 2.6 (sparc). It is written in ANSI C using POSIX almost exclusively except for some BSD functions that appear on most systems (e.g. sockets). So it shouldn't be difficult to get it working on other (recent) systems.
There is a README file and a manual entry:
