The Aide De Camp II Section

One of the finest PBeM programs (and the first and most commercially succesful) is a product from HPS Simulations called Aide De Camp.  Nick Bell's webpage (Die Hauptkampflinie), in particular, supports Aide De Camp in a thoroughly professional manner.  Apologies for any repetition of his material...

Note that many of the current board wargame companies prefer to vend their own ADC modules and will (likely) take a dim view of free distribution of such.   Fortunately for us, they don't charge much for the gamesets!  Here is a listing of current commercial offerings, courtesy of Nick Bell's site:

In addition, John Kincaid tends a list of commercial gamesets he maintains online.
