2.99.50s17 available as tarball. SECURITY WARNING



There are new things:

    - There is a SECURITY FAULT in all ZMailer smtpservers that
      allow running router in interactive mode to assist/do address
      analysis with user inputs.  This fault exists in *ALL* versions
      of ZMailer previous to this one! (even 2.2.1 !)

      DO NOT allow running router for EXPN, VRFY, MAIL FROM, RCPT TO !
      You can disable those by removing characters 'e v f t' from the
      style flags at the  $MAILSHARE/smtpserver.conf
      (Or to -s option of the smtpserver either.  Default for that
       option is 've', so you MUST supply option:  -s ''  which
       zeroes the enable flag set.)

      That fault is corrected at this release, but if you tinker with
      your router configuration scripts, you may open up new holes.
      That is why running of the interactive router is made *difficult*,
      you *have to* be aware that you are doing it!

      ( C.Y.A. -- or rather C.M.A. ... )

    - Smtpserver speaks TLSv1/SSLv3 at the SMTP socket, if desired.
      (uses OpenSSL library, very new source version..)

    - Smtpserver Implements "AUTH LOGIN" in a way which is compatible
      with plaintext implemented by M$ Outlook Express (at IE4 ?  or IE5 ?)
      The TLS/SSL works here too.

    - Smtpserver Implements "AUTH=LOGIN" in a way which is for the
      Netscape Communicator per NS specs;  TLS/SSL works too.

    - A bug-circumvention for Linux/i386 glibc 2.1.1 library problem.
      (smtpserver thing this too)

    - smtpserver reports normally only single-line replies for all
      protocol replies; Many (all?) M$ things seem to be unable to
      understand RFC 821 Appendix E multiline replies :-(

    - smtpserver has RBL machinery for IPv6 too, propably way ahead
      of its time...

    (things before that are in 2.99.50s15)

And of course there are known bugs which I haven't fixed yet:
(but they aren't fatal for common usage cases)
