Description Chun-Chung Chen 2009-02-16 22:52:13 EST
SSL connection through IPv6 results in the following errors in /var/log/maillog

  Line too long before authentication host=[NON-IPv4]
  Connection reset by peer, while reading line user=??? host=[NON-IPv4]

Both 2007e-1.fc10 and 2007e-4.fc11 versions of uw-imap are affected.

This is the same as the bug in Debian:


and can be fixed by adding IP=6 to the environment variables of "make", e.g.,

--- uw-imap.spec.orig	2009-02-16 22:49:51.000000000 -0500

Thanks, will take a look.
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 07:26:09 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2010-04-27 08:59:39 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2010-04-27 09:39:12 EDT
Sorry, fell off my radar, will try to take a look asap.
