"mailer" has been a dead term for a couple decades, since everything has
switched to IMAP. "mail client" is the usual term. Unfortunately, that
doesn't seem to be used consistently in descriptions :(

So, `port list category:mail` gets you a combination of servers,
interactive clients, and client libraries. I'm not quite sure how to
quickly filter that further.
