Description Gerrit Slomma 2011-02-09 06:24:18 EST
Description of problem:

postfix-version of RHEL5 ist very old (from August 2008) and ist not actively developed any more upstream, not even as a legacy-version - hence no more security-patches.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

postfix-2.3.3-2.1.el5_2

How reproducible:

everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum list postfix
2.
3.
  
Actual results:

postfix-2.3.3-2.1.el5_2

Expected results:

Rebase to the version 2.6.6 of RHEL6 since this version is actively developed upstream as a legacy-version, security-patches would be released.
