Animail is a Python program that downloads your email from a mail server using either POP3 or IMAP. Before downloading entire messages, It checks the headers for indications that a message is spam. If you have a slow internet connection or a lot of spam, Animail can save a lot of time downloading your mail.

Animail's output is in mbox format. You need an email client that can read or import mail in this format. Future versions of Animail should act like a POP3 server to eliminate this requirement.
