-
-Please send mailutils bug reports to <bug-mailutils@gnu.org>.
-
-
-Version 1.9.90:
-
-* New configuration file format.
-
-* Programs
-
-** Debugging and online help
-
-Each Mailutils utility understands two additional command line
-options:
-
- --debug-level=LEVEL Set Mailutils debugging level.
- --debug-line-info Show source info with debugging messages.
-
-(see also `** Global debugging and verbosity settings.', below)
-
-The programs using configuration file facility also understand the
---config-help command line option. This option prints on the standard
-output the detailed description of configuration file statements that
-affect the given program.
-
-** URL parameters.
-
-Additional mailbox URL parameters `type', `user' and `param' can
-appear in any local URLs.
-
-** MAIL and FOLDER environment variables.
-
-These variables are consulted only if mail-spool directory is not
-explicitely set either in the configuration files or in the command
-line. This is different from the previous versions.
-
-** New utility `maidag'
-
-Maidag is a MAIl Delivery AGent. It is a general-purpose MDA able to
-run in both traditional and LMTP mode and to deliver mails to various
-mailbox formats. These formats, among others, include remote+smtp and
-remote+sendmail (see `New mailbox types.', below), which are
-equivalent to forwarding a message over SMTP. Thus, maidag supercedes
-both `mail.local' and `mail.remote' (which are still included for
-backward compatibility). Maidag is also able to process incoming
-messages using Sieve or Scheme scripts and, based on results of this
-processing, to take a decision on whether to actually deliver and
-where to deliver them.
-
-** Comsat
-
-The `comsat' utility is able to notify about messages delivered to
-a mailbox of any `local' type, i.e.: UNIX mailbox, MH and Maildir.
-This is implemented using quick access mode. See `Quick access to a
-message', below.
-
-The communication protocol has been modified to make this possible.
-The traditional comsat protocol is supported as well.
-
-** New Sieve action `pipe'
-
-Syntax: pipe [:envelope] <command line: string>
-
-This action executes the given <command line> and pipes the message to
-its standard input. If the :envelope tag is given, the envelope of the
-message is piped as well.
-
-** Client SMTP STARTTLS support
-
-** Support for new protocols: POPS (pops://) and IMAPS (imaps://),
-
-** LDAP support (authentication and authorization).
-
-** Support for TCP wrappers.
-
-The support for TCP wrappers is added to the daemon programs (imap4d,
-pop3d, maidag). The support is controlled at compile time by the
---with-tcpwrappers command line options to configure. By default, it
-is enabled if libwrap presence is detected. A set of configuration
-file statements are provided for fine tuning TCP wrappers at run-time.
-
-** pop3d and imap4d ports.
-
-Pop3d and imap4d can be configured to listen on several different
-IP addresses/ports (or even local sockets) simultaneously.
-
-** pop3d: Fixed APOP handling.
-
-** imap4d supports PREAUTH mode.
-
-Three mechanisms are provided for authentifying the connection in
-PREAUTH mode:
-
- 1. stdio - PREAUTH mode is enabled automatically if imap4d is started
- from command line in interactive mode (-i command line
- option). The current login name is used as the user name.
-
- 2. ident - The remote machine is asked about the requester identity
- using the identification protocol (RFC 1413). Both plaintext and
- DES encrypted replies are understood.
-
- 3. prog - Imap4d invokes an external program to authenticate the
- connection. The command line is obtained from the supplied string,
- by expandind the following variables:
-
- 1) ${client_address} - Remote IP address in dotted-quad notation;
- 2) ${client_port} - Remote port number;
- 3) ${server_address} - Local IP address;
- 4) ${server_port} - Local port number.
-
- If the connection is authenticated, the program should print the
- user name, followed by a newline character, on its standard
- output and exit with code 0.
-
- Otherwise, it shoud exit with a non-zero exit code.
-
-* Libraries
-
-** Diagnostic and debugging functions essentially rewritten.
-
-A set of debugging macros, MU_DEBUG0 through MU_DEBUG11, is provided.
-New functions mu_debug_printf and mu_debug_vprintf allow for flexible
-formatting of debugging messages. The mu_debug_t object features
-built-in line bufferring.
-
-The new function mu_debug_check_level(d,l) returns true if the logging
-level currently set for debugging object `d' matches that given by
-`l'.
-
-New diagnostics functions are available, among them:
-
- void mu_diag_vprintf (int level, const char *fmt, va_list ap);
- void mu_diag_printf (int level, const char *fmt, ...);
- void mu_diag_voutput (int level, const char *fmt, va_list ap);
- void mu_diag_output (int level, const char *fmt, ...);
-
-A new header file, mailutils/diag.h, declarations of these and other
-related functions.
-
-See documentation (FIXME: Chapter?) for more information.
-
-The functions mu_error and mu_verror are shortcuts for
-mu_diag_output (MU_DIAG_ERROR, ...) and mu_diag_voutput (MU_DIAG_ERROR, ...),
-correspondingly.
-
-The function mu_error_set_print is deprecated as well as the
-mu_error_pfn_t type. They are, however, still supported. The following
-approach is recommended to use instead of mu_error_set_print:
-
- mu_diag_get_debug (&debug);
- mu_debug_set_print (debug, new_printer, NULL);
-
-** Header iteration
-
-New function `mu_header_get_iterator' returns an iterator for this
-header object. Thus, the following code loops over all headers:
-
- mu_iterator_t itr;
- mu_header_get_iterator (header, &itr);
- for (mu_iterator_first (itr); !mu_iterator_is_done (itr);
- mu_iterator_next (itr))
- {
- const char *hdr, *val;
- mu_iterator_current_kv (itr,
- (const void**)&hdr,
- (void**)&val));
- /* Do something with hdr and val */
- }
- mu_iterator_destroy (&itr);
-
-** Global debugging and verbosity settings.
-
-These settings provide default values for mu_debug_t objects created
-by various library objects. The following functions are provided for
-dealing with global debugging level:
-
- unsigned mu_global_debug_level (const char *object_name);
- int mu_global_debug_set_level (const char *object_name, unsigned level);
- int mu_global_debug_clear_level (const char *object_name);
-
-** New function mu_mailbox_sync
-
-It supercedes mu_mailbox_save_attributes, which is now considered
-deprecated.
-
-** Observable event handling
-
-Each event type is associated with an event-specific data
-pointer. This pointer is passed to event handling functions along with
-an opaque function-specific data pointer. This affects the following
-functions:
-
- mu_observer_set_action
- mu_observer_set_action_data (New function)
- mu_observable_notify
-
-New type of event, MU_EVT_MESSAGE_APPEND, is signalled whenever a new
-message is appended to the mailbox.
-
-** Quick access to a message
-
-A set of functions are provided for so-called `quick access' to mail
-messages.
-
-Quick access is used when an application needs to quickly read one
-message from the mailbox. In particular, this mode is used by comsat.
-
-To use quick access functions, the mailbox must be opened with flags
-MU_STREAM_READ|MU_STREAM_QACCESS. The function
-mu_mailbox_quick_get_message can then be used to retrieve the message:
-
- int mu_mailbox_quick_get_message (mu_mailbox_t mbox,
- mu_message_qid_t qid,
- mu_message_t *pmsg);
-
-The message is identified by the second argument, qid.
-
-The function mu_message_get_qid can be used to retrieve
-mu_message_qid_t identifier for a message:
-
- int mu_message_get_qid (mu_message_t msg, mu_message_qid_t *pqid);
-
-** New `aget' and `sget' accessors for mu_url_t
-
-The following new accessors are provided:
-
-extern int mu_url_sget_scheme (const mu_url_t, const char **);
-extern int mu_url_aget_scheme (const mu_url_t, char **);
-
-extern int mu_url_sget_user (const mu_url_t, const char **);
-extern int mu_url_aget_user (const mu_url_t, char **);
-
-extern int mu_url_sget_passwd (const mu_url_t, const char **);
-extern int mu_url_aget_passwd (const mu_url_t, char **);
-
-extern int mu_url_sget_auth (const mu_url_t, const char **);
-extern int mu_url_aget_auth (const mu_url_t, char **);
-
-extern int mu_url_sget_host (const mu_url_t, const char **);
-extern int mu_url_aget_host (const mu_url_t, char **);
-
-extern int mu_url_sget_path (const mu_url_t, const char **);
-extern int mu_url_aget_path (const mu_url_t, char **);
-
-extern int mu_url_sget_query (const mu_url_t, const char **);
-extern int mu_url_aget_query (const mu_url_t, char **);
-
-int mu_url_sget_fvpairs (const mu_url_t, size_t *, char ***);
-int mu_url_aget_fvpairs (const mu_url_t, size_t *, char ***);
-
-** ACL
-
-A set of functions implements general-purpose access control lists.
-They are declared in the header file mailutils/acl.h. Currently,
-these functions support IPv4 and UNIX address families. Support for
-more address families, in particular IPv6, will be added in future.
-The following actions can be defined in ACLs:
-
- 1. mu_acl_accept - Accept connection.
- 2. mu_acl_deny - Deny connection.
- 3. mu_acl_log - Issue a log message, using mu_diag.*
- diagnostics functions.
- 4. mu_acl_exec - Execute an external program.
- 5. mu_acl_ifexec - Execute an external program and accept or
- deny connection depending on its exit code.
-
-** KWD
-
-A set of functions is provided for translating string values to
-integer tokens and vice-versa using simple translation tables.
-These functions are declared in the header file mailutils/kwd.h.
-
-** Vartab
-
-A set of functions is provided for performing variable expansion in
-strings. These functions are declared in the header file
-mailutils/vartab.h.
-
-** Incompatible change in mu_url_get_.* return value
-
-Any mu_url_get_.* accessors return MU_ERR_ENOENT if the corresponding
-field is not present in the object. Previous versions in that case
-returned 0 and stored empty string in the output buffer.
-
-** New mailbox types.
-
-Two new mailbox types, "remote+smtp" and "remote+sendmail", are
-supported. These are `append-only' mailboxes, i.e. the only operation
-that can be done over them is mu_mailbox_append_message. E.g.,
-appending to the URL `remote+smtp://127.0.0.1:24' is equivalent to
-sending a message using mailer `smtp://127.0.0.1:24'.
-
-** New argcv functions.
-
-- int mu_argcv_get_np (const char *command, int len,
- const char *delim, const char *cmnt,
- int flags,
- int *pargc, char ***pargv, char **endp);
-
-This function is an alternative entry point to
-mu_argcv_get/mu_argcv_get_n functions. The resulting argv will contain
-non-whitespace delimiters only if flags contains the bit
-MU_ARGCV_RETURN_DELIMS.
-
-- void mu_argcv_remove (int *pargc, char ***pargv,
- int (*sel) (const char *, void *), void *);
-
-Removes from pargc/pargv all elements for which the sel function
-returns true.
-
-** New registry functions.
-
-- int mu_registrar_lookup_url (mu_url_t url, int flags,
- mu_record_t *precord, int *pflags);
-
-** Fixed parsing of URLs similar to file:///a/b.
-
-It is parsed as an absolute file name `/a/b'.
-
-Previous versions incorrectly understood such an URL as `a/b'
-(relative file name).
-
-** Remove v0.6 compatibility layer.
-
-** Function mu_mail_directory is removed.
-
-** New function mu_mailbox_url.
-
-
-Version 1.2:
-
-* GPLv3
-
-The programs in this release are licensed under the GNU General Public License
-version 3. The libraries are covered by the GNU Lesser General Public License
-version 3.
-
-* `libmailbox' library
-
-** mu_stream_wait and mu_fd_wait allow to wait for exceptional conditions.
-
-** maildir and mh repositories are created if MU_STREAM_CREAT flag is supplied.
-
-** Fix coredump in argcv, which was triggered by input line consisting of
-a single double-quote character.
-
-** Fix inconsistency in decoding MIME messages: the CRLF preceding the
-encapsulation line is conceptually attached to the boundary, as
-requested by RFC 1521.
-
-** Three kinds of accessors.
-
-Each MU object has now three kind of accessors. The `sget' accessor
-returns a pointer to the immutable memory allocated inside the object
-and holding its string representation. The `aget' accessor allocates
-new memory chunk, copies there the string representation of the object
-and returns the pointer to the allocated memory. Finally, the `get'
-accessor copies the string representation to the character buffer
-supplied by the caller. For example:
-
- const char *s;
- mu_header_sget_value (hdr, "From", &s);
-
- char *s
- mu_header_aget_value (hdr, "From", &s);
- [...]
- free (s);
-
- char buf[SIZE];
- size_t size;
- mu_header_get_value (hdr, "From", buf, sizeof buf, &size);
-
-** RFC2822 Headers.
-
-The RFC 2822 headers support has been rewritten from scratch. The
-accessor functions are able to return a given header instance in case
-of multiple headers, something which was impossible in the earlier
-Mailutils releases. These new functions are given identifiers, ending
-with `_n', for example:
-
- int mu_header_sget_value_n (mu_header_t header,
- const char *name, int n, const char **retval);
-
-The `n' argument gives the ordinal number (1-based) of the header to return.
-For example, to get the topmost 'Recieved' header:
-
- mu_header_sget_value_n (header, "Received", 1, &str);
-
-To count headers from the bottom up, pass negative value of `n',
-e.g. to get the last 'Recieved' header:
-
- mu_header_sget_value_n (header, "Received", -1, &str);
-
-For backward compatibility, traditional header accessors are still
-provided, being implemented as macros that expand to the
-corresponding `_n' style accessors.
-
-Important note: `mu_header_aget_value' does not allocate any memory
-if the requested header was not found. This differs from its behavior
-in previous releases, where it used to return a pointer to an empty
-string ("") in that case.
-
-New functions are provided for adding and replacing headers:
-
-- int mu_header_prepend (mu_header_t header, const char *name, const char *val)
-
-Prepends header `name: val' to the existing headers;
-
-- int mu_header_append (mu_header_t header, const char *name, const char *val)
-
-Appends header `name: val' to the existing headers
-
-- int mu_header_insert (mu_header_t header, const char *name, const char *val,
- const char *ref, int num, int flags)
-
-Inserts header `name: val'. The insertion position is determined by
-the last three arguments:
-
- -- If flags is MU_HEADER_REPLACE and the header with the same name
- exists, it is replaced by the new header. Otherwise:
- -- If ref == NULL, the header is added before the existing ones;
- -- If ref is not NULL, the new header is inserted after `num'th
- occurrence of the header named `ref'. If flags is
- MU_HEADER_BEFORE, it is inserted before that occurrence.
-
-** New functions `mu_address_set_local_part', `mu_address_set_domain',
-`mu_address_set_route', `mu_address_set_email'
-
-* The `mail.local' utility
-
-The program can be run by a non-privileged user. Thus, it can be used with
-`fetchmail' and similar utilities.
-
-Any changes to message headers done by Sieve filters are reflected in
-the delivered message.
-
-* The `mail' utility:
-
-Fix bugs in `pipe' command: the cmd variable setting
-and single-argument invocation were handled incorrectly
-
-Fix coredump in `send' command.
-
-** Empty messages
-
-The handling of empty messages by the `mail' utility is controlled by the
-bollean variable `nullbody'. If it is set (the default), the message
-is sent and the warning ``Null message body; hope that's ok'' is
-issued. This is compatible with other mail implementations. The exact
-message displayed in this case is set by `nullbodymsg' variable.
-
-If `nullbody' is unset, the message is silently ignored. This is
-useful, in particular, in crontab files.
-
-* The `readmsg' utility.
-
-Improve compatibility with elm's implementation. In particular -w
-'From_' will now output `From ' markers. If the underlying mailbox
-format does not contain those, `readmsg' will try to construct them
-from the available data.
-
-* The `pop3d' utility.
-
-New options `--bulletin-db' and `--bulletin-source' implement bulletin
-facility.
-
-* MH changes
-
-** sortm uses stable sort algorithm.
-** send supports `--split'. The new option `--chunksize' allows to
-set size of chunks to split the message into. The default size is
-48032 (632 lines, each of 76 bytes).
-
-
-* Support for old DBM has been withdrawn.
-
-
-Version 1.1:
-
-* mail: Implement ^ and $ commands
-
-* Add support for Berkeley DB 3 and 4
-
-* comsat
-
-The syntax of echo command changed. Now it is more shell-like:
-
-echo
-echo New mail for \a$u@$h:
-echo ---
-echo From: $H{From}
-echo Subject: $H{Subject}
-echo $B(,5)---
-
-** Bug fixes
-* Fix build without Guile
-* mail core dumped on tab expansion of `cd x'
-* Print "-- \n" before ~a expansion in mail
-* Fix memory problems in mail's `decode' command
-* Fix endless loop in libsieve that was triggered by using a tag without the
-arguments it requires.
-* Fix unfolding
-
-
-Version 1.0:
-
-Official release. This is the first stable release since 0.6. For a
-complete list of changes, please see the entries below.
-
-
-Version 0.6.95:
-
-* New functions:
-** Two new functions (mu_tcp_stream_create_with_source_ip and
-mu_tcp_stream_create_with_source_host) allow to create TCP connections
-from the given source address.
-
-* Bugfixes:
-** Fix handling of Fcc headers in mailers
-** Fix several inconsistencies in `mh/folder' to make it compatible with
-RAND and nmh implementations. In particular, `folder -all +name'
-(`folders +name') is now working as expected.
-** MH programs create directory hierarchies if requested to.
-** `mail' correctly handles empty mailboxes (it used to display garbage in
-place of the message count).
-** Fix RFC 2047 filters: do not stop translating until the buffer is drained.
-** Fix option handling in guimb: remove leftover optind usage.
-
-
-Version 0.6.94:
-
-* Add support for Berkeley DB 3.x and 4.x
-See the description of --with-berkeley-db option in the README file.
-
-* Add support for Guile 1.8.x
-
-* The module mailutils.scm is now defined as (mailutils mailutils). Please
-change your (use-modules) statements accordingly.
-
-* Scheme modules can now be installed in the site-wide Guile directory.
-See the description of --with-guiledir option in the README file.
-
-* Bugfixes:
-** Fix handling of file names containing whitespace characters in imap4 server
-and library.
-** frm: Fix coredump on empty From headers.
-** folder: If a +folder is given along with the -all switch, folder will, in
-addition to setting the current folder, list the top-level subfolders
-for the current folder (with -norecurse) or list all sub-folders under
-the current folder recursively (with -recurse). This behavior is
-compatible with nmh and rand implementations.
-** rmf: Fix coredump when invoked without arguments.
-** send: rename draft file after sending it.
-** All mh utilities: create nested directories, if required.
-** Correctly handle comma-delimited folder lists in Fcc headers.
-** A decoder stream correctly handles unfinished input strings.
-
-
-Version 0.6.93:
-
-* The library namespace is optimized. Now all global identifiers begin
-with mu_.
-NOTE: This is incompatible change.
-
-Programs using old API can still be compiled, using one of the
-following approaches. If the program includes <mailutils/mailutils.h>,
-define the symbol MU_COMPAT before including it (or invoke cc with
--DMU_COMPAT option). Otherwise, include file <mailutils/compat.h>.
-
-* Main library is renamed to libmailutils
-NOTE: This is incompatible change, unless you use mailutils-config to
-obtain loader options (which is recommended, anyway).
-
-* Use of '~' character (denoting the user home directory)
-
-This character is expanded also if it appears after the protocol
-specification in a mailbox URL. e.g.: maildir:~/Mail/inbox.
-
-It is possible to use '~' in mailutils configuration file.
-
-* New option --mailbox-type
-
-Use this option to specify the default mailbox type. It is supported
-by all utilities that use "mailbox" command line capability (see the
-documentation for the list). For example:
-
- mail --mailbox-type=mh: --file=~/Mail/inbox
-
-will open ~/Mail/inbox directory as an MH folder. This option is
-especially useful in the mailutils configuration file. For example,
-adding this line to your mailutils.rc:
-
-:mailbox --mailbox-type=mh:
-
-will force all mail utilities to use MH by default.
-
-* mail: New option --exec (-E) allows to execute arbitrary mail commands
-before opening the mailbox. Any number of --exec options can be given.
-
-** New variables `recursivealiases' and `inplacealiases' control the way
-mail aliases are expanded. When `recursivealiases' is set, aliases
-will be expanded recursively. When `inplacealiases' is set, alias
-expansion takes place before entering compose mode (by default, it is
-carried out when exiting compose mode, right before sending the
-message). The default is `set recursivealiases noinplacealiases'.
-
-* imap4d: New option --create-home-dir: If a user logs in and his home
-directory does not exist, create it.
-
-* Changes in MH
-
-** Context file handling
-
-Comments and empty lines are allowed in any MH context file
-(.mh_profile, .mtstailor etc.)
-
-Comment is any line whose first non-whitespace character is
-'#'. Notice that '#' looses its special meaning when used as a part of
-the keyword or a value.
-
-** send
-
-Add support for localname and localdomain mtstailor variables.
-
-New mtstailor variable x-mailer controls whether to add the 'X-Mailer'
-header to the message being sent, if it does not contain one. The
-value 'yes' means to add the default X-Mailer string, the value
-'no' means to ignore it. Any other value is taken as the X-Mailer
-identifier to be added to the message.
-
-** mhn
-
-In compose mode mhn analyzes Subject: line and, if it contains any
-non-printable characters, encodes it in accordance with RFC
-2047. Encoding type and charset are taken from the first message
-part. They also can be specified in the subject itself using the
-following syntax:
-
- #<encoding=ENC; charset=CSET>CONTENT
-
-* Bugfixes:
-** mail: Fix handling of conditional expressions
-** mail: When several recipients were specified, no alias expansion took
-place.
-** movemail: did not preserve input mailbox if an I/O error happened on the
-output one. Debian Bug#344420.
-** Fix handling of Alternate-Mailboxes in MH
-
-
-Version 0.6.91:
-
-* libsieve: New action 'vacation'
-
-* imap4d: Implemented SASL authentication using LOGIN and PLAIN mechanisms.
-
-* Plaintext passwords for SASL authentication types can be kept in SQL
-database. When used with LOGIN or PLAIN, the passwords may be
-encrypted using MySQL password() function. New option
---sql-password-type specifies what kind of password is returned by
---sql-getpass query. Its possible values are: `plain' for plaintext
-passwords, `scrambled' for passwords hashed using MySQL algorithm and
-`hash' for MD5 or DES hashed passwords (default).
-
-* mail
-
-** Improved output of the commands `headers' and `z'
-
-** Improved POSIX compatibility.
-In particular, `next' command now works as described by
-POSIX. Following commands change the status of the message to `read':
-mbox, pipe, print, top, undelete, visual and decode (a GNU extension).
-Implemented following variables: flipr, showto, bang.
-The command `touch' does not alter messages that were deleted or saved
-to a file.
-
-** The `decode' command uses `mailcap' extension to display
-parts of MIME multy-part messages. By default the built-in mailcap
-engine is used. Normally `mail' asks for confirmation before running
-an interpreter to display a message part, unless the type of the part
-is listed in `mimenoask' mail variable.
-
-If `metamail' variable is set, it specifies the external program
-to be used instead of the built-in engine. Thus, settting
-
- set metamail="metamail -m mail -p"
-
-in your ~/.mailrc enables use of the standard `metamail' program
-by `decode'.
-
-Before calling `metamail', the environment variable METAMAIL_PAGER
-is set to the value of the variable PAGER. If `mimenoask' mail
-variable is set, its value is passed to `metamail' via MM_NOASK
-environment variable.
-
-Unsetting `metamail' variable turns off special interpretation
-of MIME parts.
-
-* from
-The `from' utility was rewritten. It is now fully compatible with the
-BSD version.
-
-* frm
-Implemented -t (--align) command line option.
-Whenever available, `frm' uses BIDI algorithm for display. This
-allows for correct display of subject lines written in languages
-with right to left script orientation (Arabic, Hebrew).
-
-* Maildir support
-Implemented removal of messages.
-
-* New SQL driver: odbc
-
-* New authentication method: radius
-
-* Ukrainian localization
-
-* Bugfixes
-
-** Fixed possible mailbox corruption in imap4d
-** imap4d subscribe/unsubscribe was not working
-** Fixed displaying mail headers in different languages (mail,frm,from)
-** SQL authentication: prevent sql injection attacks
-** Fixed bug in the default syslog diagnostic printer
-** Fixed potential vulnerabilities: IDEF0954, IDEF0955, IDEF0956, IDEF0957
-** `Imap:' mailboxes (remote mailboxes opened via imap interface) honor
-read-only mode.
-** Fixed date support in maildir (header fields Date, Envelope-Date and
-Delivery-Date).
-** Fixed RFC 2047 encoding.
-** Fixed folder_list() function.
-
-
-Version 0.6:
-
-* New features:
-
-** Both imap4d and pop3d accept new command line option `--tls-required'.
-
-The option disables any authentication commands until the client party
-establishes TLS connection with the server.
-
-** Pop3d server accepts new option `--delete-expired'.
-
-This option is to be used together with `--expire'. It enables
-automatic deletion of expired messages before closing the
-mailbox. Previous versions of pop3d relied on a cron job that
-was supposed to purge users' mailboxes, but such usage is extremely
-ineffective for mail servers with considerable number of users.
-
-** The package can be compiled with support for both MySQL and PostgreSQL
-simultaneously. Which of the interfaces to use is defined at run time
-by --sql-interface option.
-
-** Mail.local is able to retrieve mailbox quotas from SQL database.
-
-* movemail: Special mode for interfacing with Emacs (--emacs option)
-
-* Bug fixes
-
-
-Version 0.5:
-
-* New features:
-
-** Autodetection of local folder formats.
-
-"Local" is a format of mail folder that uses local disk (possibly via
-NFS) as its storage medium. Currently mailutils is able to handle
-three local formats: UNIX mailbox, MH and Maildir. Usually these are
-specified using a corresponding URL prefix. However, if an absolute
-path name is given instead of a fully qualified URL, mailutils tries to
-autodetect the format of the folder in question and handle it
-appropriately (previous versions of mailutils assumed the folder
-to be in UNIX mailbox format).
-
-** movemail: new program
-
-Moves mail from the user maildrop (remote or local) to the local file.
-It supports all mailbox formats, supported by mailutils.
-
-** Support for "maildir" format.
-
-** sieve:
-
-*** Considerably improved debugging diagnostics.
-*** New sieve extension tests:
-
- spamd - An interface to SpamAssassin daemon
- list - Test headers, structured as lists of values.
- timestamp - Compares headers containing dates.
-
-** mail
-*** Support for -a option (append header)
-*** New command 'sendheaders' allows to pre-set the headers to be added to
-the message.
-*** New commands 'sender' and 'nosender' allow to set up a list
-of header fields used to determine the sender of the message.
-*** New variable 'xmailer' controls whether an X-Mailer header should
-be added to outgoing messages.
-*** New variables 'datefield' and 'emptystart' for compatibility with
-nail
-*** New variable 'decode-fallback' controls how to represent the characters
-that cannot be rendered using current character set.
-
-** mail.remote
-*** Support for -t option (read recipients from the message). This fixes
-the bug reported lately where mail.remote sends mail to all addresses
-in the message, not just the addresses explicitly listed on the
-command line.
-
-** pop3d
-*** New option --login-delay. Support for login-delay
-*** New option --undelete. Forces pop3d to clear deletion
-marks from all messages after opening the mailbox.
-
-* Bug fixes:
-
-** libmailbox
-*** Fixed incorrect handling of underscores in Quoted-Printable encoding.
-*** rfc2047_decode() takes into account input and output
-character sets.
-
-** mh
-*** (formataddr): Fixed checking for duplicate addresses.
-
-** pop3d:
-*** Do not save delete marks when exiting on timeout.
-
-** imap4d
-*** Fixed bug that prevented SASL from working over a TLS encrypted
-channel.
-*** IDLE works on TLS connections.
-
-
-Version 0.4:
-
-* Bug fixes:
-
-** Fixed improper use of size_t instead of off_t which caused
-coredumps on systems where the two types have different sizes.
-
-** iterator_t is rewritten to make list traversal more effective.
-Traversing the list of n elements takes O(n), instead of O(n*(n+1)/2)
-time units.
-
-** Fixed memory allocation bug in mailbox/mu_auth.c
-
-** Various fixes and improvements in MH in order to interoperate better
-with MH-E.
-
-** Correctly handle MIME parts with an empty body.
-
-* Major Changes
-
-** The library has been split into the core library (libmailbox), and
-the protocol implementation libraries, which are named as
-libmu_$PROTO. For example, the library for MBOX mailbox formats is
-libmu_mbox.so.
-
-** The support for TLS protocol has been added to libmu_imap.so and
-libmu_pop.so. This means that you can now use TLS with every
-Mailutils client program.
-
-* New features.
-
-** libmailbox
-
-** See "Major Changes"
-
-*** implemented header unfolding
-
-*** argcv_get unescapes all unprintable characters, argcv_string
-escapes them.
-
-** libsieve: Implemented boolean shortcuts for evaluating ALLOF and
-ANYOF
-
-** pop3d
-
-*** more extensive diagnostics for APOP authentications
-
-*** Save headers even if the session was aborted. This ensures
-the persistence of message unique-ids as required by RFC 1939.
-
-*** popauth: new option --create.
-
-The option allows to convert a plaintext file into DBM database.
-
-** mail
-
-*** New configuration file variable `mailx' enables the mailx
-compatibility mode. This is mainly visible when composing a message.
-In mailx compatibility mode, mail asks for Cc and Bcc addresses after
-composing the body.
-The default behavior is to ask for these values before composing
-the body.
-
-*** New variable `charset' controls the decoding of MIME-encoded headers
-(rfc2047).
-
-*** New commands `unfold' and `nounfold' allow to specify the headers
-whose values should be unfolded before display.
-
-* mh
-
-Lots of bugfixes regarding compatibility issues and interoperation
-with MH-E. This version of MH has been tested with MH-E 7.4.2+cvs.
-
-** New program: ali
-
-** New profile variables:
-*** Charset
-Controls the character set in which the components decoded via
-the `decode' format function should be output.
-
-*** Reply-Regex
-Sets the regular expression used to recognize reply messages.
-
-** New format functions
-*** reply_regex
-Sets the regular expression used to recognize reply messages.
-
-*** isreply
-Returns true if its argument is the reply message subject string,
-i.e. if it matches the "reply subject" regular expression.

-and to strip off the leading tabs, which allows for natural
-indentation of the multiline strings.
-
-** Added support for relational tests according to RFC 3431.
-
-** Fixed incorrect handling of multiple addresses in `address'
-tests.
-
-* imap4d:
-
-** The untagged output was fixed to conform to the RFC 2060. Specifically,

- `from ! subject:/daily/' outputs all messages whose subject
- does not contain the word 'daily'.
- Reply command correctly adds `In-Reply-To' and `References' headers
- to outgoing messages.
- When used with a numeric argument '=' command sets the current
- message to this number.
