Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.11.6nb1, Package name: postfix-2.11.6nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Postfix aims to be an alternative to the widely-used sendmail
program. Sendmail is responsible for 70% of all e-mail delivered
on the Internet. With an estimated 100 million users, that's an
estimated 10 billion (10^10) messages daily. A stunning number.

Although IBM supported the Postfix development, it abstains from
control over its evolution. The goal is to have Postfix installed
on as many systems as possible. To this end, the software is given
away with no strings attached to it, so that it can evolve with
input from and under control by its users.

In other words, IBM releases Postfix only once. I will be around
to guide its development for a limited time.

Log message:
Update postfix to 2.11.6, security release.

With all supported Postfix releases, the default settings have been
updated so that they no longer enable export-grade ciphers, and no
longer enable the SSLv2 and SSLv3 protocols. These ciphers and
protocols have little if any legitimate use today, and have instead
become a vehicle for downgrade attacks. There are no other code
changes.

Postfix documentation has been updated to reflect the new default
settings and their rationale; the RELEASE_NOTES give suggestions
for how to enable the old ciphers and protocols if your infrastructure
requires them.

Finally, abandoning deprecated ciphers and protocols does not really
improve TLS security without measures to better authenticate remote
servers. Secure DNS and TLSA are steps in that direction.

Log message:
Update postfix to 2.11.5.

Fixed in Postfix 3.0 and 2.11:

  * Preparation for OpenSSL 1.2 API changes.

Fixed in all supported releases:

  * The sender_dependent_relayhost_maps feature ignored the relayhost
    setting in the case of a DUNNO lookup result. It would use the
    recipient domain instead.

Log message:
Move Berkeley DB compilation definition from options.mk to Makefile
and remove "bdb" option.

Because Berkeley DB is always mandatory, it does not make sense to
force users to enable "bdb" option to use Berkeley DB.

Log message:
Update postfix to 2.11.4.

Postfix 2.11.4 only:

* Fix a core dump when smtp_policy_maps specifies an invalid TLS
  level.

* Fix a missing " in \%s\", in postconf(1) fatal error messages,
  which violated the C language spec. Reported by Iain Hibbert.

All supported releases:

* Stop excessive recursion in the cleanup server while recovering
  from a virtual alias expansion loop. Problem found at Two Sigma.

* Stop exponential memory allocation with virtual alias expansion
  loops. This came to light after fixing the previous problem.
