1.19 will be probably remembered as one of the shortest release ever.
After having plugged my leak-checker, XMail was crashing. Well, it turned
out that there was a leak plus a possible use-after-free bug. Both were in
a non really common path, so they were really hard to find. Nevertheless
XMail was crashing after 30-60 minutes in my machines, so my $64000
question is: why the heck valgrind did not catch them?
(I will be making 1.20 asap)

1.20 release files are available here:

http://www.xmailserver.org

This fixed the possible memory leak and the use-after-free bug:

http://www.xmailserver.org/ChangeLog.html#...30__2004_v_1_20

I definitely recommend to update to 1.20

-------------------------------------------------------

Implemented the ``filter'' command for custom mail processing (MAILPROC.TAB, cmdaliases and custom domains).

If ``RemoveSpoolErrors'' is set inside the SERVER.TAB file, messages are never frozen. Before there was a special case (delivery failure and delivery notification failure) that could have lead to frozen messages.

Made ``aliasdomainadd'' to check for the existence of the alias domain (and reject the command if existing).

Introduced a new environment variable recognized by XMail (XMAIL_PID_DIR), to let the user to specify a custom PID file directory (this is for Unix ports only).

Implemented ability to stop custom mail processing upon certain exit codes from external commands execution.

The SPAMMERS.TAB check is now bypassable (see doc for details).

'ATTENTION': Changed the ``aliasdomainlist'' syntax and output format (see doc for details).

Made (on Unix setups) the PID file name to be dependent on the daemon file name.

Implemeted a domain-wise MAILPROC.TAB and extended its ``redirect'' and ``lredirect'' commands to support account specific (USER@DOMAIN) and domain targets (DOMAIN).

Implemented SMTP filters to allow users to reject the SMTP session before and after the remote client data has been received.

Upgrade as usually:

- Stop XMail
- Replace all inside MailRoot/bin
- Start XMail

If you need SMTP level filtering, create these additional files inside MailRoot:
filters.pre-data.tab
filters.post-data.tab

IMPORTANT NOTE
According to very rare but random crashes or high mem usage on Unix/Linux systems, upgrading to 1.20 is urgently recommended. Since the codebase is the same, this is also true for all Win32 platforms. Version 1.20 fixes some mem leaks of all previous releases.

If your system is affected or if you experienced the "LD_ASSUME_KERNEL problem", please read this note and follow these instructions:

Pls, tell them to:

# export XMAIL_DEBUG=1
# make -f Makefile.lnx clean
# make -f Makefile.lnx
# cp bin/XMail $MAIL_ROOT/bin
# ulimit -c 50000
# $MAIL_ROOT/bin/XMail -Md ...

When the crash happens, they should have core files in /. Let them run:

# gdb -c /core.???? $MAIL_ROOT/bin/XMail
> bt full
> q

And send me the report. Tel them to save the core file and the XMail
binary.

Davide, et. all.

There appears to be a bug with the "AliasDomainList" command.  When an alias
domain wildcard is added to an aliasdomainlist command, the domain wildcard
is completely ignored.

Example 1:

aliasdomainlist [tab] mydomain.com

will return all alias domains for mydomain.com as it should.  However...

Example 2:

aliasdomainlist [tab] mydomain.com [tab] *

will return a full list of alias domains for all domains.


Will be fixed in the next release.

It's been 6 months now, and I just wanted to see if this program still has life? I know releases can't be made every month, but there hasn't been a peep of news since 1.20.

Davide is working on a 2nd release branch as well: XMail 2.0 which includes IMAP. So there will only be a 1.2x release when bugs are discovered.
