Mail User Agents HomePages

This page shows a list of "Mailers" (techspeak: Mailer User Agents) and their homepages on the web.

The table also shows how these mailers identify in the mail header. The standatd line so far has been "X-Mailer:", but it should now be changed to "User-Agent:".

Found a bug? Is there an update necessary? Please send me an email! Thanks! :-)
