In hopes of triggering memory/discussion, here are other mail related
programs that were documented in the ARPAnet Handbook in 1975:

mail file. Written by Marty Yonke. OFFICE-1, SRI-AI, SRI-ARC,

SRI's NLS subsystem MESSAGE allows the user to convert TENEX sndmsgs
to NLS file structure. Extensive manipulation of this NLS file is
then possible. The user can also send mail (SNDMSG) from the MESSAGE
subsystem to the network by submitting NLS files or parts of files.
Conversion from NLS to sequential text files is automatic.

All TENEX hosts.
A subsystem in SRI's NLS system that allows the user to send messages
and documents to a list of people known to NLS and to have these
messages and documents cataloged and stored in the NLS Journal if so
desired. The recipients may receive offline hardcopy, notice of the
item in their online initial file, or the item itself if it is short.
BBN-TENEX, OFFICE-1, SRI-AI, USC-ISIC
Message handling system for TENEX hosts written by J. Sussman of
