./mail/postfix, Postfix SMTP server and tools

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.1.4, Package name: postfix-3.1.4, 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 3.1.4.

Postfix stable release 3.1.4 is available, as well as legacy releases
3.0.8 and 2.11.9. There will be no further updates for Postfix 2.10.

Fixed with Postfix 3.1.4, 3.0.8, and 2.11.9:

  * The postscreen daemon did not merge the client test status
    information for concurrent sessions from the same IP address.
    Thus, after one session recorded its successful tests in the
    postscreen cache, a concurrent session from that same IP address
    that passed fewer tests could later "wipe out" some of that
    progress in the postscreen cache. The fix has proven itself for
    five months in the development release, and should be safe to
    use in the stable releases.

  * The Postfix SMTP server falsely rejected a sender address when
    validating a sender address with "smtpd_reject_unlisted_recipient
    = yes" or with "reject_unlisted_sender". Cause: the address
    validation code did not query sender_canonical_maps.

  * The virtual delivery agent did not detect failure to skip to
    the end of a mailbox file, so that mail would be delivered to
    the beginning of the file. This could happen when a mailbox
    file was already larger than the virtual mailbox size limit.

  * The postsuper command logged an incorrect rename operation count
    after creating a missing directory.

Fixed with Postfix 3.1.4 and 3.0.8:

  * The Postfix SMTP server falsely rejected mail when a sender-dependent
    "error" transport was configured. Cause: the SMTP server address
    validation code was not updated when the
    sender_dependent_default_transport_maps feature was introduced.
    The fix has proven itself for six months in the development
    release, and should be safe to use in the stable releases.
    Unfortunately, Postfix 2.11 is too different to benefit from
    the same fix.

  * The Postfix SMTP server falsely rejected an SMTPUTF8 sender
    address, when "smtpd_delay_reject = no".

Fixed with Postfix 3.1.4:

  * The "postfix tls deploy-server-cert" command used the wrong
    certificate and key file. This was caused by a cut-and-paste
    error in the postfix-tls-script file.

Log message:
Update postfix to 3.1.3.

Fixed with Postfix 3.1.3 and 3.0.7:

  * The Postfix SMTP server did not reset a previous session's
    failed/total command counts before rejecting a client that
    exceeds request or concurrency rates. This resulted in incorrect
    failed/total command counts being logged at the end of the
    rejected session.

  * The unionmap multi-table interface did not propagate table
    lookup errors, resulting in false "user unknown" responses.

  * The documentation was updated with a workaround for false "not
    found" errors with MySQL map queries that contain UTF8-encoded
    text. The workaround is to specify "option_group = client" in
    Postfix MySQL configuration files. This will be the default
    setting with Postfix 3.2 and later.

Log message:
Update postfix to 3.1.2.

3.1.0

The main changes in no particular order are:

  * "postfix tls" command to simplify setup of opportunistic TLS,
    and to simplify SMTP server key/certificate management.

  * Positive and negative DNS reply TTL support in postscreen(8).

  * SASL AUTH rate limit in the Postfix SMTP server.

  * A safety limit on the number of address verify requests.

  * JSON-format Postfix queue listing.

  * Destination-independent delivery rate delay

For details, see the RELEASE_NOTES file.

3.1.1

Fixed in all supported releases:

  * The Milter "replace sender" (SMFIR_CHGFROM) request lost an
    address that was added with sender_bcc_maps, resulting in a
    "rcpt count mismatch" warning. Reported by Joerg Backschues.
    This defect was introduced with Postfix 2.6.

  * The "bad filetype" example in the header_checks(5) manpage
    falsely rejected Content- headers with ``name="example";
    x-apple-part-url="example.com"''.  Reported by Cedric Knight.
    This defect was introduced with Postfix 2.6.

3.1.2

Fixed with Postfix 3.1.2:

  * Changes to make Postfix build with OpenSSL 1.1.0.

Fixed with Postfix 3.1.2 and 3.0.6:

  * The makedefs script ignored readme_directory=pathname overrides.
    Fix by Todd C. Olson.

  * The tls_session_ticket_cipher documentation says that the default
    cipher for TLS session tickets is aes-256-cbc, but the implemented
    default was aes-128-cbc. Note that TLS session ticket keys are
    rotated after 1/2 hour, to limit the impact of attacks on session
    ticket keys.
