Summary     : Class that provides multiple interfaces for sending emails
Description :
PEAR's Mail package defines an interface for implementing mailers under the
PEAR hierarchy.  It also provides supporting functions useful to multiple
mailer backends.  Currently supported backends include: PHP's native
mail() function, sendmail, and SMTP.  This package also provides a RFC822
email address list validation utility class.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Fix CVE-2009-4023, CVE-2009-4111    PEAR's Mail class did not properly escape
content of mail header fields, when using the sendmail backend. A remote
attacker could send an email message, with specially-crafted headers to local
user, leading to disclosure of content and potentially, to modification of
arbitrary system file, once the email message was processed by the PEAR's Mail
class.
