Description Christian Hechelmann 2000-10-09 13:05:33 EDT
In the imap-4.7c2-12 package shipped with RH7.0 the imapd, ipop?d servers are built with internal SSL support, i.e. when run from port imaps/pop-?s they will detect and use SSL by themselves. In the specfile however imapd and ipo?d are set to start via stunnel. This is both redundant and unfortunate, since when run via stunnel the daemons won't get the true client ip adress from which the connection originated. Instead they get 127.0.0.1 (localhost). This completely breaks DRAC (dynamic relay authorization control) AKA POP-before-SMTP.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-10-10 12:50:37 EDT
The native SSL support was added some time after the stunnel setup was added to the package. We'll have to change this. I'll mark this one as resolved when we get a package built with the changes.

You can mark this resolved, v2000 has been uploaded. (even for RH6.x).
