./mail/qmail, Secure, reliable, efficient, simple, and fast MTA

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.03nb27, Package name: qmail-1.03nb27, Maintainer: schmonz

The qmail program is a secure, reliable, efficient simple message
transfer agent. It is meant to be a replacement for the entire
sendmail-binmail system that most UNIX hosts use.

Although qmail holds security and reliability as its top two
priorities, it is also fast. On a Pentium under BSD/OS, qmail can
easily handle 200000 separate messages per day that are injected
and must then be delivered to local mailboxes!

Security and reliability are qmail's two strengths, however. The
qmail package ensures a message, once accepted, will never be lost.
An optional new mailbox format, maildir, even lets users safely
read their mail over NFS, while still accepting new mail deliveries.

The following features are supported: host and user masquerading,
full host hiding, virtual domains, null clients, list-owner rewriting,
relay control, double-bounce recording, arbitrary RFC 822 address
lists, cross-host mailing-list loop detection, per-recipient
checkpointing, downed host backoffs, independent message retry
schedules, a drop-in sendmail replacement, and more!

Log message:
Remove dependency on sysutils/checkpassword. In the default install it's
used only for qmail-pop3d, which is likely not being used much anymore.
Other installs might need a different implementation of checkpassword
anyhow. And this implementation is not (yet?) in the public domain, so
it's blocking us from publishing binary packages of qmail.

Unless (until?) sysutils/checkpassword becomes "public-domain", it
remains under "djb-nonlicense". If you continue to need it, since you've
already accepted the nonlicense, simply install it directly.

I believe this package and all its remaining dependencies are now in
DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES. Bump PKGREVISION.

Give absolute path to srsfilter. From Nathan Arthur in private mail.

Log message:
Substitute configured qmail users and groups (defaults haven't changed).
Bump dependency on queue-fix to a version that does likewise.
Bump PKGREVISION.

Log message:
Add "qmail-srs" option to apply the Sender Rewriting Scheme patch,
requested by Nathan Arthur. Bump PKGREVISION.

Log message:
To make the newly useful binary package a bit more useful, enable
qmail-{bigdns,realrcptto} (in addition to qmail-netqmail) by default.
These are conservative choices: small patches that make qmail behave
more like it probably wanted to without breaking existing systems,
adding attack surface, or failing on some platforms we support.

Bump PKGREVISION.

Log message:
Add qmail-maildiruniq and qmail-rcptcheck options, off by default. Since
we no longer stage-install as root, instcheck is noise; skip it. Mollify
pkglint. Bump PKGREVISION.
   2017-03-20 17:23:20 by Amitai Schleier | Files touched by this commit (7) | Package updated
Log message:
When I added basic DESTDIR support, I introduced a regression: the
source package stopped initializing the queue. (DESTDIR makes source
packages generate binary packages, which had never had that feature. See
<http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-changes/2011/06/07/msg056339.html>
for where the regression was introduced.)

Add a dependency on mail/queue-fix and, if no queue is present at
pkg_add time, initialize it.

Defer creating users and groups all the way to pkg_add time, and improve
DESTDIR support to full "user-destdir". Since mail/postfix lets
unprivileged users install it, we do too. (Can't run a server that way,
but so what.)

A typical (privileged) binary package should now:

1. Install on any other system of matching OS and architecture,
2. Not need matching numeric UIDs and GIDs to do so, and
3. Be usable in production.

You know, like any other binary package.

Bump PKGREVISION.

Log message:
Look up user/group IDs at runtime.

This lets us defer USERGROUP_PHASE to "pre-install", and is a step
closer to having the qmail users and groups be created at pkg_add time
(as with binary packages of typical software needing users and groups).

Based on Paul Fox's getpwnam.patch for qmail 0.96.
