it was written, but held pending resolution of a new issue. I will
include it for your reference. The rpm is being superceded as we
speak, the actual update announcement will be for new rpm.

Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : dovecot
Version     : 0.99.13                      
Release     : 2.FC3                  
Summary     : Dovecot Secure imap server
Description :
Dovecot is an IMAP server for Linux/UNIX-like systems, written with
primarily in mind.  It also contains a small POP3 server.  It supports
in either of maildir or mbox formats.

Update Information:

This is a bug fix update for the Dovecot IMAP server. This brings the
Red Hat Dovecot rpm up to date with the latest upstream release from
Timo Sirainen, version 0.99.13 released on Jan 6th 2005.

Upstream Fixes are noted below and below that are Red Hat specific

Please note there have been some changes to the /etc/dovecot.conf
file. When the rpm installs it will probably create
/etc/dovecot.conf.rpmnew file with the new version of the config file
while preserving your previous /etc/dovecot.conf file. It would be
prudent to compare the two files and see if you need to adjust your

Aside from the upstream fixes notable change in the RPM include:

- University of Washington Imap (UW Imap) migration documentation and
  scripts in the doc area (/usr/share/doc/dovecot-*)

- More example configurations in the doc area.

- The script to generate SSL certificates (mkcert in the doc area) now
  is congruent with Red Hat's OpenSSL rpm.

- The init.d script now starts dovecot later (it used to start it
  before named). If this problem was affecting your installation
  you'll have to chkconfig del and add to recreate the rc.d sym links,
  new installations will automatically pick up the new start order.

- Add a Red Specific FAQ to the doc area, mostly to address issues
  some sites were having with dot lock file creation.

====== Upstream Fixes ======


	* GNUTLS support hasn't been working for a while, so it's not even
	  tried to be used anymore unless explicitly wanted.
	+ Added CRAM-MD5 authentication mechanism. Patch by Joshua Goodall
	+ Added SMD5 and LDAP-MD5 password schemes and changed MD5 scheme to
	  use LDAP-MD5 if the password isn't in MD5crypt format. Patch by
	  Joshua Goodall
	+ Workaround for some POP3 client bugs: if message doesn't contain the
	  "end of headers" empty line, add it automatically.
	+ vpopmail supports now all password schemes, most importantly
	  MD5crypt works now without support from libc's crypt()
	- SQL and LDAP authentication was broken
	- SEARCH UNKEYWORD wasn't working


	- Fix memory leaks in LDAP, MySQL and PGSQL userdb/passdb
	- Fix hanging when parsing mails that have over 4096 bytes in one
	  line (SMTP servers normally don't allow over 1000 bytes so it
	  shouldn't be much of a problem)
	- FETCH BODYSTRUCTURE sometimes gave a wrong reply
	  (eg. with FETCH (BODYSTRUCTURE RFC822.SIZE) if it wasn't cached)
	- Never return more than one INBOX in LIST even if there are such
	  files. They don't work anyway and it just confuses clients.
	- mbox: Don't allow creating INBOX directory by creating/renaming
	  mailboxes under it. They just wouldn't work.
	- POP3: Don't return PLAIN in SASL list. We don't support initial SASL
	  responses, so it only breaks with most clients that try to use it.
	- IMAP and POP3 login processes may have sent each line in two IP
	  packets, one with the data and another with CR+LF. Some clients
	  didn't work because of this.
