Software-update: Courier 0.64.2

Het programma Courier is een opensource 'mail transfer agent', ook wel mailserver genoemd, voor Unix- en Linux-systemen. Het beschikt onder andere over esmtp, imap, pop3 en de mogelijkheid om via webmail e-mail te lezen en te versturen. Voor meer informatie over Courier en zijn mogelijkheden verwijzen we jullie door naar deze pagina. De ontwikkelaars hebben versie 0.64.2 de deur uitgedaan met de volgende lijst van aanpassingen sinds de vorige vermelding in de Meuktracker:

Version 0.64.2:
  • courier/module.local/local.c (rw_local_filter): Fix crash if a local mail filter produces more than bufsiz-1 bytes.
  • imapd.c (main): Dummy FAM/Gamin initialization, report an error during login, upon a failure.
  • imap/imapd.c (imapenhancedidle): Make FAM error more meaningful.
  • pop3dserver.c (main): "disableinsecurepop3" account option disables non-SSL logins.
  • imapd.c (chkdisabled): "disableinsecureimap" account option disables non-SSL logins.

  • courier/module.esmtp/courieresmtpd.c: Option to disable tarpitting.
  • maildrop/main.C (run): When using system authentication on platforms where the mail directory does not use the sticky bit, use groupid set by the set-group-id bit on the binary executable, if any.
  • courier/module.local/deliver.c (docommand): Do not invoke an external mail handler with a completely empty environment. Courier startup script already reset the environment, and initialized it with the default system locale, which we want the child process to inherit.
  • maildrop/main.C (run): In delivery mode, preserve LANG, LANGUAGE, and LC_* environment variables from the parent.
  • courier/ Fix typo

Vroeger nog proberen te gebruiken als IMAP server, maar had nogal wat problemen met veel clients. Daarna overgeschakeld naar Dovecot en die werkt als een zonnetje. Eenvoudiger te configureren ook.
Klopt... ik vind zelf vooral de Postfix+Dovecot combinatie ideaal, omdat ze een vergelijkbare manier van configureren hebben en beide heel eenvoudig aan dezelfde MySQL store te koppelen zijn voor het beheer van je domeinen, aliassen en mail accounts (en de Dovecot SASL optie in Postfix voor SMTP authenticatie is ook zeer praktisch).

Ik heb het idee dat Dovecot ook wat cleaner/strakker is, wellicht omdat het niet alles wil zijn (alleen imap/pop3=ophalen van mail, terwijl Postfix zich focust op het rondsturen en bezorgen van mail). Dat + maildir indexing e.d. maakt het ook een bloedsnelle IMAP server... op m'n werk draait ook Dovecot (in combinatie met Exim), en ondanks dat die server flink onder druk staat wordt alles prima snel afgehandeld.

Na de term 'mail transfer agent' verwacht ik, zeker voor unix/linux software, een vergelijking met sendmail. Inkoppertjes als eenvoudiger te bedienen en zo maar vooral welke functies van sendmail ze niet ondersteund en welke functies ze toevoegd. Het staat gelukkig wel op de website, onder 'Additional information -> Upgrade path'
