Subject: [gentoo-dev] final testing call for qmail-1.03-r12
Date: Wed, 24 Sep 2003 05:49:19
1 Hi everybody,
3 The time is near now, I've basically completed all work on the main
4 qmail ebuild. So, it's time for a lot of testing now.
6 A lot of improvements have been made to qmail between the -r10 and -r12
7 releases.
9 partial change list:
10 QMTP client support
11 ESMTP SIZE support
12 Properly FIXED STARTTLS/SSL support (there was a bug before that caused
13 mail to be delayed for upwards of 6 hours before a fallback to non-SSL)
14 SMTP AUTH (both for incoming email and outgoing emails)
15 badrcptto/morebadrcptto support
16 POP3 CAPA command support
17 Maildir++ support
18 Localtime dates
19 A bunch of patches to reduce spammer tactics that abused qmail.
20 Lots more documentation and manpages.
21 A good many other changes.
23 Configuration of all the new changes is now made possible by the
24 /var/qmail/control/conf-* files.
25 Following the few instructions in them and uncommenting relevant lines
26 allow you to easily setup many requested qmail features, such as SMTP
27 AUTH for incoming mail, SMTP after IMAP/POP3.
29 After you emerge the update, please pay attension to the messages, and
30 close attension to etc-update. defaultdelivery has changed, and if you
31 used .forward files previously without a .qmail file for each user that
32 had them, mail delivery may act differently.
34 If you used SMTP AUTH previously, please pay attension as well, as it
35 now acts somewhat differently. The outgoing portion of the SMTP AUTH may
36 change further still (see smtproutes for it currently).
