Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : dovecot
Version : 0.99.13
Release : 4.FC2
Summary : Dovecot Secure imap server
Description :
Dovecot is an IMAP server for Linux/UNIX-like systems, written with security
primarily in mind. It also contains a small POP3 server. It supports mail
in either of maildir or mbox formats.

Update Information:

This is a bug fix update for the Dovecot IMAP server. This brings the
Red Hat Dovecot rpm up to date with the latest upstream release from
Timo Sirainen, version 0.99.13 released on Jan 6th 2005.

Upstream Fixes are noted below and below that are Red Hat specific

Please note there have been some changes to the /etc/dovecot.conf
file. When the rpm installs it may create /etc/dovecot.conf.rpmnew
file with the new version of the config file while preserving your
previous /etc/dovecot.conf file if you have modified the config
file. It would be prudent to compare the two files and see if you need
to adjust your configuration.

In dovecot-0.99.13-3.FC2 authentication support using postgres and
mysql was enabled requiring these rpms. This was a change from the
previous dovecot rpm in FC2. This version of the rpm reverts back to
not building with postgres and mysql support to match previous
dependencies and features with the FC2 version of dovecot.

This version of the rpm also reverts a configuration file change that
appeared in dovecot-0.99.13-3.FC2 which had disabled overriding the
default mbox_locks value of “fcntl dotlock". This caused the creation
of dotlocks in addition to fcntl. This was a change from the previous
behavior and created some problems. The previous mbox_lock value of
fcntl only was restored to the config file.

Aside from the upstream fixes notable change in the RPM include:

- University of Washington Imap (UW Imap) migration documentation and
scripts in the doc area (/usr/share/doc/dovecot-*)

- More example configurations in the doc area.

- The script to generate SSL certificates (mkcert in the doc area) now
is congruent with Red Hat’s OpenSSL rpm.

- The init.d script now starts dovecot later (it used to start it
before named). If this problem was affecting your installation
you’ll have to chkconfig del and add to recreate the rc.d sym links,
new installations will automatically pick up the new start order.

- Add a Red Specific FAQ to the doc area, mostly to address issues
some sites were having with dot lock file creation.

====== Upstream Fixes ======


* GNUTLS support hasn’t been working for a while, so it’s not even
tried to be used anymore unless explicitly wanted.
+ Added CRAM-MD5 authentication mechanism. Patch by Joshua Goodall
+ Added SMD5 and LDAP-MD5 password schemes and changed MD5 scheme to
use LDAP-MD5 if the password isn’t in MD5crypt format. Patch by
Joshua Goodall
+ Workaround for some POP3 client bugs: if message doesn’t contain the
“end of headersâ€
