The Simple Mail Access Protocol (SMAP)[1] is an application layer Internet protocol for accessing e-mail stored on a server. It was introduced as part of the Courier suite, with the goal of creating a simpler and more capable alternative to IMAP.

As of 2005, SMAP is still considered experimental, and is only supported by the Courier server and Cone client.
